Hiroharu Kobayashi, Michiyasu Kawai


A 50-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for the treatment of left ovarian tumor. Transvaginal ultrasound examination revealed a unilocular lesion of 4 cm diameter at left adnexa and magnetic resonance imaging showed a solid component with contrast effect at the luminal wall. She underwent laparotomy for the diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma at laparotomy. It revealed globally swelled left fallopian tube and normal left ovary. Histopathological examination of frozen section of left adnexa showed serous borderline tumor of left fallopian tube. Additionally, hysterectomy, right salpingo-oophorectomy and partial omentectomy were performed. Final pathologic diagnosis was serous borderline tumor of left fallopian tube (FIGO stage IA). She had no recurrent sign 1 year after surgery. Borderline tumor of fallopian tube is very rare. There were 21 previously reported cases, 15 cases being serous, five cases mucinous and one case endometrioid.
