Description

Background: Primary fallopian tube carcinoma (FTC) is an aggressive but rare tumor. Worldwide, more than 1,500 cases have been published, and about 20 new cases are added every year. isolated fallopian tube torsion (IFTT) is an unusual and uncommon event. Case: We report a 69-year-old Caucasian woman, Gravida 4, Para 3, with a long history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus with retinopathy and neuropathy, and history of extensive coronary artery disease, for which a triple-by-pass graft was performed She was placed on anticoagulation therapy. Subsequently, she developed intermittent vaginal bleeding. Results: We reviewed and discussed the symptoms and work-up of the patient in detail. She underwent exploratory laparotomy, and primary FTC with isolated torsion of the involved fallopian tube was diagnosed. Peritoneal washings, omentectomy, total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectamy were performed. Conclusion: Review of the English literature on the presenting symptoms and diagnostic management of primary FTC and IFTT is presented.
