Primary Fallopian tube carcinoma is a rare malignancy and is not often diagnosed preoperatively. We present a case of a 67-year old woman who complained of postmenopausal vaginal bleeding.

The presence of an adnexal mass was confirmed by MR imaging. Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingoophorectomy, omentectomy and appendectomy, as well as pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy was performed. The pathohistological diagnosis was poorly differentiated serous adenocarcinoma of the Fallopian tube, FIGO stag...
