ABSTRACT
Nine cases of tubal carcinoma were found in a period of 20 years in JIPMER Hospital among approximately 9,000 gynaecological malignancies. Most patients were diagnosed as malignant ovarian tumour, but two cases presented unusually, one as Meig′s syndrome and another as acute hemoperitoneum. This often stressed symptom of amber discharge or hydrops tubae profluens could not be elicited in any patient. All the patients underwent surgical treatment and radiotherapy or chemotherapy. The period of follow up ranged from two months to four and half years.
