With an incidence of 0.1% to 1.0% of all genital malignancies, primary tubal carcinoma is a rare malignant disease of the female genital tract. The prognosis is generally regarded as very poor. It is comparable with that of ovarian carcinoma. From 1980–1995, four patients were treated for primary tubal carcinoma at the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the University of Homburg/Saar. FIGO stages IIa - IV were manifested as the primary stage. Surgery was performed as primary treatment in all patients. Both chemotherapy and percutaneous radiation were used as adjuvant postoperative therapy. The recurrence-free interval was 18–30 months. One patient died 21 months after primary diagnosis. The other free patients are in a period of follow-up obser­vation of 16–96 months in an NC or CR status.
