Report of two cases of controlateral groin recurrence after ipsilateral groin node dissection for vulval cancer.

Author information

Obstetrics Department, University of Roma La Sapienza, Italy.


Among the more conservative management strategies intended to individualize the surgical treatment of vulval cancer, ispilateral groin dissection is proposed for T1-T2 lateral lesions. Since patients found negative for metastatic nodes in the ipsilateral groin and developing unexpected recurrences in the controlateral non-dissected groin have a poor outcome, it is useful to report such cases to better evaluate the safety of these less aggressive surgical procedures.
