Abstract:   (4725 Views)
Primary sarcomas of the fallopian tube are extremely rare and excluding malignant mixed mullerian tumors, 34 cases have been reported in the literature of the recent 100 years. Out of 34 cases only 15 cases have clearly been described as leiomyosarcomas. The patient of the present report was a 45-year-old woman with leiomyosarcoma confined to the right fallopian tube. She is still alive without any sign of disease 16 months after surgery. The clinical signs and symptoms of fallopian tube sarcomas are usually non-specific and include lower abdominal pain and pelvic pressure. The age of patients during diagnosis varies from 21 to 70 years(with a mean of 47 years) and prognosis is poor. The primary treatment is surgical excision but adjunctive chemotherapy or radiation may be of some benefit.
