SNB represents the most important step in workup for regional metastasis in patients with melanoma. We confirmed that Breslow thickness, ulceration, and nodal metastasis were important predictors of prognosis. This study demonstrated results from a university hospital in Denmark similar to other epidemiological evaluations of melanoma and SNB.
