The carcinoma of the Fallopian tube is rare pathology,
estimated between 0.1 % and 1.8 %, which occurs between
the fifth and sixth decades of life. OBJECTIVE: To
determine and know the incidence of carcinoma of the
Fallopian tube by age, symptoms, diagnosis, staging,
treatment, evolution and survival. METHOD: We realized
a retrospective study of case series of patients treated at
the Gynecologic Oncology Service IVSS in the decade
enter 2004-2014. RESULTS: In 4 cases of the primary
fallopian tube cancer we have the diagnostic. The average
age was 53 years old, ranging between 47 years to 60
years old. None of them had pre-surgical diagnosis; the
more frequent histological type was the papillary serous
adenocarcinoma, the stage III were predominant and the
retroperitoneal dissemination also. Only in the 50 % of
the patients the immunohistochemistry were performed,
3 patients of them were handled as interval surgery and
chemotherapy neoadjuvant for three to four cycles. One
patient died of this cause and three are alive with disease
currently undergoing the chemotherapy treatment.
CONCLUSION: The fallopian tube carcinoma, is a rare
pathology, we recommend realized and performing the
multicenter studies, to generating series with more patients,
allowing establishing the protocols for the management of
primary carcinoma of the Fallopian tube.
