Carcinoma of the fallopian tube is often a chance finding when other pelvic pathology had been suspected. Primary carcinoma of the tube is exceedingly rare, accounting for 0.3% of genital tract cancer.[1,2] It most commonly occurs in women between 40 and 60 years of age, with a peak incidence at about 55 years. Approximately 50% of the patients are nulliparous. It is usually unilateral, but 20% of cases are bilateral.
