Background: There is a paucity of information regarding fallopian tube tumors of low malignant potential (LMP) in the literature. Case: We present two cases representing alternative management options of low LMP of the fallopian tube. Conclusion: Although low malignant potential tumors of the ovary are relatively common, there are few reported cases of tumors of LMP originating in the fallopian tube. Treatment has been extrapolated from tumors of LMP of the ovary, and conservative fertility­sparing surgery and complete staging procedure remains controversial. We urge continued reporting of these fallopian tube tumors of LMP to enhance understanding of these rare tumors and to develop a more cohesive treatment plan.
