Malignant mixed mullerain tumors (MMMT) are rare neoplasms of the female genital tract that histolotically consist of malignant epithelial and stromal components, arising in the endometirum, followed in decreasing order by the vagina, cervix, and ovary. Tubal origin is extremely rare and accounts for less than 4% of all MMMTs. Most of the patients present with nonspecific abdominal pain or abnormal vaginal bleeding. Nonspecific findings on imaging studies also make exact preoperative diagnosis very difficult, mostly mistaken as ovarian malignancies. The primary goal of treatment is removal of tumor mass by cytoreductive surgery. Postoperatively, chemotherapy or radiotherapy is added, but prognosis is very poor. The best form of postoperative adjuvant therapy is not yet established due to the rarity of this disease entity. We report a case of a malignant mixed mullerian tumor of the fallopian tube that we have experienced recently with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Malignant mixed mullerian tumor, Fallopian tube
