Abstract

Immunohistochemistry of histologically negative axillary lymph nodes in breast-cancer patients resulted in upstaging of the sentinel lymph node in eight (14%) of 52 patients, The resulting information altered clinical management in six of these patients. Thus, this technique may affect clinical decision-making in breast-cancer patients.
