Primary tumors of the fallopian tubes: retrospective analysis of results in 7 patients

, : Primary tumors of the fallopian tubes: retrospective analysis of results in 7 patients. Srpski Arhiv Za Celokupno Lekarstvo 126(5-6): 188-191

Primary malignant tumours of the Fallopian tube are among the rarest of gynaecological malignancies. Seven patients with primary malignant tumour of the Fallopian tube, treated between 1991 and 1996, were studied. The average age was 60 years, with nulliparity rate of 29 percent and a mean parity of 2.2. The most common symptoms were atypical vaginal bleeding (29 percent), abdominal pain and distention (29 percent), whereas 43 percent of patients had no symptoms. No patient had a correct preoperative diagnosis. Primary surgical treatment was in all patients hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorotomy with or without omentectomy. Staging was done according to the FIGO classification for Fallopian tube carcinomas. In Stage I 29 percent of patients were classified, 43 percent in Stage II and 29 percent in Stage III. Six patients (86 percent) had adenocarcinoma (1 in G1, 2 in G2, 3 in G3) and 1 had MMMT (malignant mixed tumour-heterology type). All patients received additional postoperative therapy including: chemotherapy (58 percent), radiotherapy (14 percent), hormonotherapy (14 percent) or combination of chemotherapy and hormone therapy (14 percent). Our results are comparable to those of other authors. The time is too short to predict a 5-year survival, but this will be reported in our next paper.
