Type:Case report

Abstract:Synchronous gynecological tumors are rare. It is even rarer to find the rarest of gynecological tumors that of the fallopian tube, together with a histological sub-type as rare as adenocarcinoma cervix. In the field of Gynecological Oncology, this type of lesion is infrequent, representing no less than 6% of cases. We present a case of a 45 year patient with a primary adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube synchronous with a papillary endocervical adenocarcinoma of cervix. A Radical Wertheim Hysterectomy With Bilateral Pelvic Lymph Node Dissection was done. We reported papillary endocervical adenocarcinoma of cervix in association with fallopian tube adenocarcinoma [A Synchronized Origin]. All the lymph nodes were negative. FIGO staging was done, for cervix it was 1B1 and for fallopian tube it was 1A.
