Abstract

Fallopian tube carcinoma is the least common of gynecological malignancies. We report the case of a 56-year-old woman who presented with a 21/2-year history of intermittent vaginal bleeding and lower abdominal pain. Transvaginal sonography revealed a cystic lesion of the fallopian tube with papillary projections, distinct from the ovary and uterus. Doppler examination showed low vascular impedance (resistance index 0.50, pulsatility index 0.80). The suspicion of tubal malignancy was confirmed at surgery.
