Özet

We report a case of a 75-year-old postmenopausal woman with primary fallopian tube carcinoma confined to the left fallopian tube in Stage IA-2, who is alive without evidence of disease three years after total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingooophorectomy, total omentectomy, pelvic and paraaortic lymph node dissection were performed. Histopathological examination revealed a poorly differentiated (grade 3) papillary serous adenocarcinoma of the left fallopian tube. Adjuvant irradiation was given. Primary fallopian cancer should be suspected by clinicians even if the presenting symptoms are atypical and the primary treatment remains surgical resection followed by adjuvant chemotherapy or radiation. Appropriate therapy for each stage of the disease should be defined and new studies are needed to better depict the clinical course and prognostic factors.
