FALLOPIAN TUBE - Hydrosalpinx

The tube is enormously distended and convoluted. The fimbriated end is blind and the finbriae are no longer to be seen. At the back of the specimen is a portion of a corpus luteum.
This woman presented at the age of 40 with an asymptomatic pelvic tumour. Some years previously she had had tubal ligation and this lesion had followed.
