Primary carcinoma of fallopian tube is rare and accounts for only 0.7-1.5% of all gynecological malignancies. Majority of the patients are postmenopausal with mean age of 61 years. Study present a case of 48-year-old lady, who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo oophorectomy for a clinical diagnosis of fibroid uterus. Histopathological examination revealed, in addition to intramural fibroids, bilateral serous papillary adenocarcinoma of fallopian tube. We present this case due to its rarity.
