This is a study of 150 cases of epidermal carcinoma of the vulva, treated in the Service of Gynecology of the National Institute on Oncology, of which inguinal lymphoadenec­tomy was practised in 126 cases. The histopathological study of the ganglions removed shows an incidence of 42% of total metastasis. Ganglionic metastasis was analyzed side by side with the clinical state and that of the localization of the tumor. The results of the metastasis of the "Cloquet ganglions" are also presented plus the invasion of the regional pelvic-ganglions with the existence or non-existence in the above mentioned ganglions.
