A case report of primary adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube

Am J Obstet Gynecol. 1985 Jan 15;151(2):211-2. doi: 10.1016/0002-9378(85)90014-6.


The apparently smallest primary adenocarcinoma (2.3 mm in diameter) of the fallopian tube ever described was diagnosed by repeated blind sectioning of the surgical specimen after the preoperative finding of an abnormal cervical Papanicolaou smear and the subsequent finding of abnormal cells in fluid obtained by laparoscopic peritoneal lavage, although a survey of the patient for a primary cancer was negative.
