Culprit or Bystander? The Role of the Fallopian Tube in “Ovarian” High-Grade Serous Carcinoma | Cancer Discovery

 Abstract

Summary: The concurrence of intraepithelial high-grade neoplasia in the fallopian tube with metastatic implants has been taken as evidence of a tubal origin for high-grade serous pelvic carcinomas. In the current issue, Eckert and colleagues perform detailed genomic phylogenetic analyses and demonstrate that some cases of high-grade serous intraepithelial tubal neoplasia are metastatic implants and not precursor lesions.
