OBJECTIVE Our goal was to determine survival after extended-field treatment of para-aortic lymph node (PALN) metastasis. METHODS Thirty-five patients were treated from 1975-1989 for PALN metastasis. The FIGO stages were IB 10, 2A 3, IIB 9, IIIA 1, IIIB 10, 4A 1, and unstaged 1. The diagnosis in 34 patients was by operative staging and in 1 by CT scan and fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
