ABSTRACT
Background: Fallopian Tubes are very common surgical specimen received in the pathological laboratory. It is affected by wide spectrum of both non neoplastic and neoplastic lesions. But there is very few studies described the frequency of various histopathological spectrums of lesions of fallopian tube.
Aims & Objectives: To study the various histopathological lesions seen in surgically resected specimens of fallopian tube and their age distributions.
Material and Method: A total of 200 surgically resected specimen of fallopian tube of all age group of patients which are received for one and half year duration, are processed with routine histopathological techniques. Histopathological features were studied on Haematoxylin and Eosin stain.
Results: In our studies majority of the cases are belongs to 40 to 60 years of age out of 200 specimens. In this study, most of the patients were undergone total abdominal hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy (60%).
In our study out of 200 cases 63 (31.50%) specimens show unremarkable histology. Only 1(0.50%) case shows neoplastic pathology. Most common histopathological findings observed are paratubal cyst, ectopic tubal gestation and Walthard Cell Nests.
Conclusion: Present study shows broad spectrum of pathological lesions in fallopian tube. Majority of the lesions are non neoplastic in nature. Thorough histopathological examination of fallopian tube specimens is necessary to document many lesions including rare primary intraepithelial malignancy which can be missed clinically and found incidentally on histopathological examination.
