Fallopian tube carcinoma in-situ in endometrial curettage

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Primary fallopian tube carcinomas (PFTC) are rare tumors with non-specific clinical presentations. The current case was unique since the tumor was first detected on endometrial curettage and clinicoradiologically was misdiagnosed as endometrial carcinoma. A 48-year-old, post-menopausal female presented with one episode of vaginal bleeding. Endometrial curettage showed poorly differentiated carcinoma, while cervicovaginal Papanicolaou (Pap) smear was negative for malignant cells. Right sided fallopian tube carcinoma in-situ was diagnosed on histopathological examination of surgical hysterectomy with B/L salpingo-oophorectomy specimen. As observed in the current case, unusual tumor histology with broad papillary fronds lined by pleomorphic cells showing nuclear stratification and focal involvement of endometrial curettage specimen may be considered a useful pointer for tubal malignancy.
