Abstract

The first publication on direct lymphography was made by B. Kinmouth (1) in 1952.

The use of lymphography in gynecological cancer was first described by. M. Colette (2) in 1958.

Whether this method is useful in the diagnosis and in the treatment of cancer of the female genital tract is still 12 years later a source of debate.

Although many reports have been very enthusiastic about this technic in the management of cancer of the genital tract, many others have been rather pessimistic.

It is only by a good historadiological correlation of a very large number of cases that the problem can be solved.

The following article will provide an additional experience on that field and try to definite more precisely the limits of lymphography in gynecological cancer.
