Primary fallopian tube carcinoma is a rare gynaecological malignancy. A post-menopausal woman who was aged 65- years was admitted to the hospital with complaints of severe abdominal pain and fever with chills for 2 days. A laparotomy was done and the final diagnosis was left tubal papillary adenocarcinoma, without any evidence of metastasis in the peritoneal cavity. The diagnosis of fallopian tube carcinoma is seldom made pre-operatively, because its signs and symptoms are not specific and it is often mistaken for an ovarian or a tuboovarian mass. We are reporting one such rare case of primary adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube.
