Abstract

Eight cases of fine needle aspiration (FNA) of supraclavicular lymph nodes are presented. Clinical and pathologic data and the route of spread to the left supraclavicular node (Vir-chow's node) are discussed. FNA has proven to be an accurate, inexpensive, and easily learned skill in the evaluation of distant metastatic disease. Careful palpation of the supraclavicular nodes in all patients with known or suspected pelvic malignancy may influence stage and therapy if positive nodes are identified.
