Abstract

The use of lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymph node biopsy has profoundly changed the management of patients with malignant melanoma. This technique may also be useful to identify patients with micrometastases of other skin cancers in the regional lymph nodes. This article, reviews the rationale and initial experience of lymphatic mapping for nonmelanoma skin cancers. The technical considerations of the lymphatic mapping for these skin cancer patients are also discussed.
