Endometrial cancer is counted to be the most common gynecological malignancy and it is usually diagnosed at the early stages of the disease .Cancer staging main target is to help clinicians in making the decision for best management of cases and to guide treatment plan. Surgical staging includes; hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and estimation of regional LN involvement, specifically the pelvic and aortic lymph node. Some instructed that lymphadenectomy clarifies the risk of recurrence and helps clinicians make the decision to give adjuvant treatment to high-risk patients. While, some suggested that, complete pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy itself is associated with major comorbidities. Sentinel lymphadenectomy has been suggested in the staging process of the diseases with fewer traumas has considerable appeal.
