Primary tuba carcinoma is a rare carcinoma type and it is quite difficult to diagnose it preoperatively. The patient who was operated by reason of preliminary diagnosis of tubaovarian abscess in our clinic, was diagnosed as primary tuba adenocarcinoma histopathologically. The patient was assessed as in stage IIc and she received chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She developed recurrence after a remission period, and her illness aggrevated into stage IV. After 36 months from diagnosis our case died because of respiratory failure.
