Primary Fallopian Tube Carcinoma Arising in the Setting of Chronic Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Figure 1

(a) is the macroscopic image of the left fallopian tube which is totally destroyed and cystic. Fleshy white masses are noted in the wall. The upper nodular mass protrudes into the lumen of the cystically dilated haemorrhagic tube. (b) is a low power view of the tube with the tumour protruding into the lumen (Haematoxylin and Eosin stained section, original magnification of ×4). (c) is high power view of the tumour (Haematoxylin and Eosin stained section, original magnification of ×60). (d) shows the benign tubal epithelium (Haematoxylin and Eosin stained section, original magnification of ×60) and (e) and (f) show dysplastic tubal epithelium with loss of polarity, stratification, and nuclear pleomorphism (Haematoxylin and Eosin stained sections, original magnification of ×60).
