Abstract
Endosalpingiosis is a condition in which fallopian tube-like epithelium is found outside the fallopian tube. It is a non-neoplastic lesion of Mullerian system. This disease was first discovered by Sampson in 1930. Endosalpingiosis incidence is rare compared to endometriosis (about 5-10%) and it is commonly found in reproductive-age women. Endosalpingiosis diagnosis is confirmed by histopathological examination. The objective of this case report is to increase our knowledge about endosalpingiosis. We reported a female, 36 years old, P1A0, with lower abdominal pain for the last 4 years. The woman had a regular menstruation every month with dysmenorrhea. On physical examination, it obtained normal vital signs and normal nutritional status with BMI of 23.29. On gynecological examination, it showed 7x6 cm palpable cystic mass in the right adnexa and mobile. The result of transvaginal ultrasound showed the presence of hypoechoic masses on the right and left adnexa with 7.97x7.95 cm and 3.28 x2.87 cm in size. During laparoscopy, right paratubal cyst and pseudocyst on the left adnexa appeared with 8x8 cm and 5x4 cm in size, yellowish-white color, and uterus to rectum adhesion. Adhesiolysis as well as bilateral cystectomy were conducted and then the histopathological result showed paratubal serous cystadenoma with endosalpingiosis. Endosalpingiosis is a rare case. The attention to this rare case will prevent us from making a wrong diagnosis and over-treatment.
