Abstract

The Italian physician and anatomist Gabriele Falloppio provided the first detailed and accurate description of the oviducts in humans in 1561 A.D. and designated it the "Uteri Tuba" [88]. This organ was eventually named after him. Since that time, a wide variety of non-neoplastic and neoplastic diseases of the fallopian tube has become recognized, but it is only recently that the pathogenesis of fallopian tube carcinoma is beginning to be understood.
