Abstract
Primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube is a rare entity that accounts for about 1% of all gynecologic malignancies, and most are discovered during or after surgery. Primary transitional cell carcinoma of the fallopian tube is an extremely rare tumor that is reported only occasionally in the worldwide literature. Histologically, fallopian tube carcinomas are almost always papillary adenocarcinomas, but other histologic types such as endometrioid carcinoma, clear cell carcinoma, and mixed carcinoma have been reported. As primary transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the fallopian tube is so rare, the clinicopathologic characteristics are as yet unknown. The authors recently experienced a case of primary transitional cell carcinoma arising in the fallopian tube, and thus report the clinical features, management, and also a review of the past pertinent literature.
Key Words: Primary fallopian tube carcinoma, Transitional cell carcinoma
