In this paper the author describes the morphological and immunohistochemical features of the most common benign epithelial lesions of the salpinx, which can be mistaken for neoplastic malignancies (pseudoneoplastic lesions), on microscopic and, sometimes, also on macroscopic examination. Moreover, here it was demonstrated that both morphologic clinical data and immunohistochemical features are useful for an accurate differential pathological diagnosis from non-neoplastic lesions and serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma (STIC) and invasive carcinoma.

Keywords: Serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma, Pseudo-neoplastic lesions, Malignancies, Immunohistochemical analysis
