Fallopian tube cancer is rare and accounts for 0.3-1% of all gynaecological cancers. We describe a case of undiagnosed fallopian tube cancer presenting as a swollen inguinal lymph node and later diagnosed with PET-CT. Final histology revealed a serous adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube with metastases to both ovaries and one inguinal lymph node. Recent studies suggest that serous borderline tumour of the ovaries originate from the fallopian tubes. The present case confirms this hypothesis. PET-CT is an important tool in diagnosing ovarian and fallopian tube cancers.
