The primary carcinoma of fallopian tube is a rare entity. It represents 0.14 to 1.81% of genital cancers in women. It is a cancer of older women. Its association with tuberculosis is exceptional. We report a rare case of bilateral serous adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube in a patient aged 42 years, multiparous, whose characteristic is the unexpected association with peritoneal tuberculosis.
