A case of primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube detected in the early stage is reported. It could be diagnosed pre-operatively because adenocarcinoma cells had been found by means of aspiration smear from the uterine cavity. Hysterosalpingography showed a round, partially irregular shadow of retention on the ampulla of the right fallopian tube.
At the present moment, we find no moe useful procedure than aspiration cytology from the uterine cavity and hysterosalpingography for detecting primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube in such an early stage when it is not yet palpable as a mass.
