Abstract

Groin node dissection was done in an 80-year-old woman who had bilateral groin metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva. After this procedure, laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy was performed because of bilaterally positive groin nodes. Postoperatively, a strangulated femoral hernia occurred.
