Adenomatoid tumours are less common benign neoplasm of mesothelial origin, which originates from the lining of organs. This tumour generally presents in both male and female genital tracts. [1-9]. In males, the tumour is usually foundin testis and epididymis while in females, the uterus and rarely fallopian tubes are the sites involved.Mostlty,thistumour is found incidentally.Grossly, adenomatoid tumors are usually smallin size (less than 2 cm) well- circumscribed, solitary masses that are tan, yellow, and solid .The histopathological examination revealed features of adenomatoid tumor supported by immunohistochemical stains positive for calretinin and cytokeratin and negative for CD34. These tumourshave a good prognosis upon surgical removal with no evidence of recurrence.We present a case where this rare tumour was found incidentally in the Salpingectomy specimen of a 39-year-old woman who underwent this procedure for permanent contraception as she requested the removal of tubes instead of blockage.
