Primary tubal cancer, unlike ovarian cancer, is not routinely suspected preoperatively, and thus diagnosis and therapy are delayed. We have recently encountered two cases in which primary Fallopian tube cancer masqueraded as other lesions. One presented as a pelvic inflammatory process, the second as cervical cancer. Primary Fallopian cancer should be suspected by the clinician, even if the presenting symptoms are atypical. Chemotherapy with taxol and cisplatin was instituted following debulking surgery.
