Angiomyofibroblastoma arising from the fallopian tube

Obstet Gynecol. 1999 Nov;94(5 Pt 2):833-4. doi: 10.1016/s0029-7844(99)00362-2.


Background: Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare tumor that occurs most commonly in the vulva and vagina.

Case: A 28-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 1, presented with secondary infertility. Pelvic ultrasound showed a multicystic mass that further imaging found to be septated and extended to the umbilicus. At laparotomy, a 25 x 14 x 4 cm mass originating from the left fallopian tube and the tube were excised. Pathologic examination confirmed an angiomyofibroblastoma of the fallopian tube.

Conclusion: Angiomyofibroblastomas can occur in the fallopian tube and should be differentiated from more aggressive angiomyxoma.
