 en Primary Fallopian Tube Cancer – An Incidental Finding in a young Patient
Dahiya, Krishna; Dahiya, Pushpa & Sangwan, Vijayata


Primary fallopian tube cancer (PFTC) is rarest among gynecological malignancies.The prognosis of this malignancy is worst because of its presentation and diagnosis in advanced stage only. The symptoms of this malignancy are usually confused with pelvic inflammatory disease or ovarian malignancy. The preoperative diagnosis of PFTC is very rare and most patients with PFTC undergo laparotomy with the presumed diagnosis of ovarian tumor or tubo-ovarian mass. In the present study the patient underwent laparotomy for suspicious ovarian mass and later came out fallopian tube malignancy on frozen section. This case report is published to make the practitioner more aware about the existence of fallopian tube cancer and always to be kept in mind in young or perimenopausal patients who underwent laparotomy for suspicious tubo-ovarian mass. In the present patient only the frozen section analysis report revealed the malignancy not even the gross picture preoperatively
