Abstract Early invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva has emerged as a controversial issue in recent literature. Reports illustrating metastatic disease in the inguinal lymph nodes have conflicted with other reports suggesting local treatment only. The morbidity produced by radical vulvectomy to both body image and sexual function make this issue worthy of serious consideration. This report deals with an alternate approach to this disease entity which attempts to preserve vulvar tissue without sacrificing curability where possible metastatic disease exists. The concept is proposed of utilizing the superficial inguinal nodes as sentinel nodes in the treatment planning. The results of 20 patients treated in this manner are presented.
