Diseases of the Fallopian Tube and Paratubal Region

Abstract

The Italian physician and anatomist Gabriele Falloppio provided the first detailed and accurate description of the oviducts in humans in 1561 A.D. and designated it the “Uteri Tuba” [88]. This organ was eventually named after him. Since that time, a wide variety of non-neoplastic and neoplastic diseases of the fallopian tube has become recognized, but it is only recently that the pathogenesis of fallopian tube carcinoma is beginning to be understood.
