The author preoperatively assessed renal tumor staging using multidetector computer tomography (MDCT) and found specificity of computed tomography for capsular invasion as 85.0%, nodal disease
as 82.0% and adrenal involvement as 98.0% respectively.
The problem of nodal disease
in squamous cell carcinoma of the temporal bone.
Patients with lymphatic metastasis of cutaneous malignant melanoma benefit from sentinel lymphnodectomy and early excision of their nodal disease
. Eur J Cancer.
This is again followed by a recommended course of chemotherapy based on the final histology at nephrectomy specimen and nodal disease
Previously published papers include patients with T1-T4 disease, (15) and other included patients with nodal disease
. (14) This study only included patients with localised disease, and this was defined as T1-T3aN0M0.
Hormone receptor positive HER2 negative subset is less likely to have positive or high volume nodal disease
, and less likely to present pathological complete response so that surgery first is suggested if Z0010 and AMAROS is eligible.
Age [greater than or equal to] 50, black race, greater nodal disease
burden, ER-negative tumors, PR-negative tumors, and treatment prior to 2000 were associated with inferior outcome (Table 2).

Although chemotherapy, cryotherapy, and isotretinoin have been used unsuccessfully, steroids or surgery has been effective in treating complications associated with extra nodal disease
Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy will accurately identify nodal metastases in 97% of women with nodal disease
. Negative SLNs are accurate in 99% of cases.
This study and a recent meta-analysis  emphasise the major role of NACT to reduce ALND in patients with initial nodal disease
and the feasibility of the procedure.
