Purpose: This retrospective multicenter study aimed to assess the survival and prognostic factors of primary fallopian tube carci­noma. Methods: The medical records of 29 patients with fallopian tube carcinoma from two centers were reviewed for age, stage, surgical intervention, relapse and survival. Results: The mean age of the patients was 56 years (range, 37-76). Six patients were in Stage I (20.7%), eight cases in Stage II (27.6%), nine cases in Stage III (31%) and two cases in Stage IV (6.9%). Data on stage was not available in four cases (13.8). Fifteen patients underwent lymph node evaluation. The median follow-up was 29 months (range, 3-122). The median survival was 95 months with a 5-year survival rate of 69.7 %. The median progression-free survival was 76 months with a 5-year survival rate of 51.8 %. Conclusion: Age, stage and lymphadenectomy were found to be significant prognostic factors on overall survival.
