Abstract

Fallopian tube cancer is very rare, it accounts less than 1% of all genital tract cancer in women. The annual incidence is 3.6 per million women per year. The vast majority of fallopian tube cancers are papillary serous adenocarcinomas. Most women with fallopian tube cancer are usually diagnosed at age 50s to 60s. Vaginal bleeding or discharge is the most common presentation. We would like to present a case in which fallopian tube cancer was diagnosed in a patient with post menopausal bleeding, abnormal ultrasound finding and history of estrogen receptor (ER) positive breast cancer.
