Objective: The objective of this study was the prognostic analysis of clinicopathologic variables related to primary tumor and to lymph node metastases. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 389 cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva. The following variables were studied: patients' age, diameter and location of the tumor, clinical tumor characteristics, depth of invasion, grade, lymphovascular space involvement (LVSI) and lymph node status. In the subset of 110 node positive patients, we evaluated number of positive nodes, laterality, extension of node dissection, lymph node chains involved, presence of extracapsular spread and rate of lymph node replacement. All variables with P value
