Abstract
Primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube is an extremely rare and accounts for approximately 0.34-1.8% of all gynecologic malignancies. Preoperative diagnosis was difficult due to nonspecific symptoms and signs. This case of primary fallopian tube adenocarcinoma was confirmed postoperatively on the basis of the pathologic examination. The histology and behavior of fallopian tube cancer are simillar to ovarian cancer, so evaluation and treatment are similar to that of the ovarian cancer. We have experienced a case of primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube and so report with brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube
