Abstract

Neoplasm of the fallopian tube, which account for only a small minority of female genital tract tumors, may have diagnostic difficulties both clinically and pathologically. In most cases, the diagnosis of tubal carcinoma is not suspected preoperatively, and an abnormality of the tube is first appreciated by the gynecologist at the time of operation or by the pathologist on gross or microscopic examination. The predominant cell type of the fallopian tubal carcinoma is known for adenomatous cell type of carcinoma. A case of pure primary squamous cell carcinoma of the Fallopian tube presenting is reported first in Korea.
