Abstract

Evidence suggests an increased risk of ovarian cancer with asbestos exposure. Ovaries and corresponding fallopian tubes were studied by analytic electron microscopy. There was 71.4% agreement between tube and ovary for presence-type of asbestos. The fallopian tube can provide useful information regarding asbestos exposure when no ovarian tissue is available.
