“…A review of all case series reporting SLNB in cSCC is detailed in Table IV. 13,18,28,[41][42][43][44][45][46][47][48][49][50][51][52] Our systematic review identified an overall positive rate for SLNB of 13.9% (32 of 231 patients) and a false-negative rate of 4.6% (10 of 215 patients) in cSCC. The authors usually stated that patients had high-risk factors for lymph node involvement.…”

“…Three case series [27-29] and one case report [31] were excluded since these patients were later combined into larger institutional case series resulting in a total of 130 evaluable cases (Table 2). All of the studies, except Hatta et al [30] clearly designated cutaneous SCC cases with at least one high-risk feature.…”

“…Therapeutic lymphadenectomy should be performed in case of lymphadenopathy, while the role of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for staging EPC remains unknown, and probably may be reserved in cases of histological aggressiveness or intralymphatic permeation by the primary tumor [16-20]. In our case, tumor cells were detected in the needle aspiration of the left axillary lymph node and an axillary lymphadenectomy was performed.…”
