Abstract

Primary fallopian tube carcinoma (PFTC) is a rare gynaecological malignancy. It presents as adnexal mass or tubo-ovarian abscess. It is rarely diagnosed preoperatively as there are no specific symptoms. PFTC resembles ovarian carcinoma both histologically and clinically. Although the aetiology of this tumour is unknown, it may be associated with chronic tubal inflammation, infertility, tuberculous salpingitis and tubal endometriosis. Very few cases of PFTC have been reported till date. Here we report a case of 50-year-old menopausal female with PFTC.
