• Prognosis of patients with vulvar melanoma and inguinal lymph node metastasis is poor.

• In our study using real-world data approximately 1 in 4 patients received adjuvant immunotherapy with no clear overall survival benefit.           

• Further research to identify biomarkers to select patients who may benefit from immunotherapy is needed.
