    00:01 The tumors and cysts of the fallopian tube, a very common condition known as hydatid of the Morgagni.

    00:09 And be careful with the term hydatid, because with hydatid, you can also see the term associated with trophoblastic disease at some point when we discuss our hydatidiform moles.

    00:21 So this is hydatid of Morgagni, very common.

    00:24 A translucent cyst-filled with serous fluid.

    00:27 I’ll go and step further and as should you.

    00:30 In embryology, do you remember the Wolffian duct? Awoo! Mesonephric duct.

    00:40 Who’s that found in? A male, right? My point is this, what’s my topic? Fallopian tube pathology.

    00:51 A female does not have a Wolffian duct.

    00:55 It regresses, right? She has a paramesonephric duct.

    01:01 But oftentimes, you’ll find that you have your Wolffian duct that remains remnant or you’d find it to be a remnant.

    01:10 A remnant of this may then go on to give rise to hydatid of Morgagni.

    01:16 A little bit of integration from embryology that you need to make sure that you know.

    01:23 Also, there might be metastasis that takes place to the fallopian tube and may result in adenocarcinoma.

    01:32 A primary adenocarcinoma is rare and diagnosed only after excluding other primary sources.
