Abstract

The prolapse of a fallopian tube into the vagina is a rare complication of hysterectomy. We recently experienced a case of tubal prolapse after a laparoscopic hysterectomy in a 44-year-old woman. The vaginal examination showed a polypoid mass in the vaginal apex. Microscopically, the mass had the typical appearance of a fallopian tube with chronic inflammation. The cytologic finding of a vaginal vault smear was also described.
