The fallopian tubes represent a highly important structure for ovarian carcinogenesis. They provide the passage of eutopic endometrium from the uterus, as well as metastatic cells from the ovaries. A direct source of tumor cells for ovarian cancer was also recently confirmed in the fallopian tubes. The authors present a case report of an incidental tubal endometrioid carcinoma with the coexistence of adenomyosis.
