Abstract

The axillary lymph node status of breast carcinomas is one of their most important prognosticators. Its assessment by standard surgical and pathological methods (axillary dissection and generally one haematoxylin and eosin stained tissue section per lymph node recovered from the axillary fat) can be improved in terms of accuracy if sentinel lymph node biopsy is performed and the sentinel lymph nodes are subjected to a more detailed pathological analysis. This review deals with potential errors of the conventional staging procedures and describes the upstaging potential that can be reached via sentinel lymphadenectomy. Practical recommendations are also formulated along with the description of the methods used at the Bács-Kiskun County Teaching Hospital, Hungary.
