ABSTRACT
Primary carcinoma in the fallopian tube is a rare gynecological tumor. Its preoperative diagnosis is difficult because of its insidious and silent course. It is usually performed in the postoperative stage. This carcinoma is most frequently presented in post menopausal women. Its clinical and histological behavior is often similar to that of an ovarian cancer. In literature there are reports on the association between ovarian and endometrial cancer. Nevertheless, there are but few references to their association with fallopian tubes cancer. Two cases of primary cancer in the fallopian tubes, diagnosed in a 6 months period through post-surgical histology, that were treated in the Gynecology Service of the ¨Enrique Cabrera¨ General Teaching Hospital are presented. Their preoperative diagnoses were endometrial adenocarcinoma and ovarian cancer. It is relevant that one patient, with 44 years old, was diagnosed through endometrial biopsy performed to remove an intra uterine device. The result of that study was an endometrial adenocarcinoma that required surgery.El carcinoma primario de la trompa de Falopio es un tumor ginecológico raro. Su diagnóstico pre- operatorio se dificulta por su curso insidioso y silente, generalmente se realiza en el post-operatorio. Se presenta con mayor frecuencia en mujeres post menopaúsicas y clínica e histológicamente se comporta en muchas ocasiones como un cáncer de ovario. En la literatura se ha reportado la asociación entre cáncer de ovario y endometrio pero muy pocos han descrito la asociación de estos, con el cáncer de la trompa de Falopio. Se presentan dos casos de cáncer primario de la trompa de Falopio, diagnosticados en un período de 6 meses por histología post-quirúrgica, intervenidos en el Servicio de Ginecología del Hospital General Docente ¨Enrique Cabrera¨ y cuyos diagnósticos pre-operatorios fueron: adenocarcinoma de endometrio y cáncer de ovario. Es llamativo, que una de las pacientes, de 44 años, se le realiza el diagnóstico al realizar biopsia endometrial para retirar un dispositivo intrauterino y el resultado de dicho estudio fue un adenocarcinoma de endometrio que justifica la intervención quirúrgica.
