Abstract

Endometrial cancer is the most widely spread gynaecologic neoplasm in industrial countries. Mode of spread includes direct extension, lymphatic and haematic diffusion. Lymphatic involvement, particularly, is a topic of wide debate due to the strong therapeutic implications associated with it. In this regard, anatomic-surgical staging is better in that it corresponds to real conditions whereas clinical-instrumental staging is still today incomplete.
