Abstract

Background: One of the commonest surgical specimens received along with uterus is the fallopian tube. Numerous pathologies, both systemic and local, both primary and secondary tumors are seen in the fallopian tube specimen.
Materials and Methods: Retrospective study was conducted over a period of four years and analysis of clinical data along with gross and microscopy was done. Incidence and prevalence of various lesions were calculated.
Results: No pathology was identified in 90.18% of the cases. Amongst abnormal findings, hydrosalphinx and paratubal cysts were common findings. Two primary fallopian tumors and one secondary from the ovary involving fallopian tube were also noted in the study.
Conclusion: Even though uncommon, fallopian tube can present with various pathologies. All fallopian tube specimens’ needs to be closely evaluated histopathologically as recent studies point towards fallopian tube being the seeding site for serous malignant ovarian tumors.
