Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Only three cases of adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube in an adolescent have been reported previously in the literature, and we report the fourth such case. The main presenting symptom in those patients was lower abdominal pain. Type of therapy and outcome of these four cases is reviewed. The small number of patients precludes definitive conclusion on optimal therapy. For this reason, we urge continued reporting of cases to insure the formation of concrete therapeutic recommendations.
