The procedure of sentinel node biopsy has been used previously in clear cell sarcoma. There are few studies reported. Due to the similar biological features with melanoma, this procedure can be effective. Sentinel biopsy is an option to detect nodal subclinical metastases. A 19-year-old man presented with ulcerated lesion in the fifth finger of the left hand. The biopsy reported clear cell sarcoma. Immunohistochemistry was positive for Vimentin and S-100. There was no evidence of regional disease. The sentinel lymph node biopsy, using patent blue and Tc-99 rhenium, was positive for metastases. Axillar dissection was carried out. The final report confirmed three metastasic nodes and the patient received adjuvant chemotherapy.
