Leong et al,1 in their article "Discordancy Between Clinical Predictions vs Lymphoscintigraphic and Intraoperative Mapping of Sentinel Lymph Node Drainage of Primary Melanoma" recently published in the ARCHIVES, make several conclusive statements that are in no way supported by their article. Since these statements could result in harm to patients, I think it is very important that my concerns be aired.
