Sentinel lymph node mapping in endometrial cancer can help to provide the prognostic information needed while avoiding the morbidity associated with a complete lymphadenectomy. Studies with blue dye and technetium colloid have only given about 80% detection rates whereas with indocyanine green injection and fluorescence imaging, it gives about 88-100% detection rates. Herein, we report a case where indocyanine green was injected intracervically and sentinel nodes were detected at the paraaortic nodal area. © The authors; licensee ecancermedicalscience.
