Abstract

Lymphoma of the female genital tract is rare, and usually involves the ovaries or the uterus. Most cases of fallopian tube lymphoma reflect disease arising in the ovaries. All previously reported cases of primary lymphoma of the fallopian tube were of B cell lineage. A 51-year-old woman presented with systemic upset and a pelvic mass. At laparotomy, both fallopian tubes were inflamed and histological examination revealed peripheral T-cell lymphoma. At staging, she had IIB(E) disease, and she was treated with six cycles of CHOP-M chemotherapy. Our case is unusual in that this is the first described case of peripheral T-cell lymphoma arising in the fallopian tubes and is moreover unusual because of the involvement of both fallopian tubes without involvement of other gynaecological organs. The clinical course was favourable with complete remission maintained for more than 5 years.
