A 66-year-old woman was diagnosed with vaginal melanoma. Sentinel node mapping was performed using 99mTc sulfur colloid. Planar scintigraphic acquisitions detected 2 sentinel nodes in the right external iliac region, which were laparoscopically removed with an anterior vaginectomy. Sentinel node mapping is feasible in cases of vaginal melanoma.
