The authors report a case of primary bilateral adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube in a woman with invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast in her antecedents. The tubal carcinoma was in situ or invasive and appeared as a bilateral hydrosalpinx, fact which often happens in the literature. Gross examination showed a tumoral mass of about 2 cm diameter at the fimbriated end of the right tube, the diagnostic of bilaterality requiring serial cuts on the left tube. The electron microscopic study showed ciliated differentiation in the neoplastic cells, bearing out the primitive nature of the proliferation.
