tubal serous cystadenofibroma

Cystadenofibromas of the Fallopian tube are very rare benign tumors of the female genital tract. These tumours are usually asymptomatic and are found incidentally.

The histopathologic finding reveals a cystic lesion connected to the salpinx. The cyst is composed of connective stroma lined by epithelial cuboidal cells, without pleomorphism or detectable mitoses.

Pseudopapillary structures are observed in the lumen of the cyst.
