DISEASES OF THE FALLOPIAN TUBES





Category: Diseases of Women

These are named after their discoverer,
Fallopian, an Italian anatomist. These tubes begin at the part of the body
of the womb that extends out like a horn. This is on the sides near the
top of the body of the womb. They are two in number and extend outward on
each side for about four inches; each end forms a fringe or finger shape
to catch the egg, as it emerges from the ovary. Through the center there
is a tube or canal, and the inner lining of the womb continues on and
lines this canal, the mucous membrane of the Fallopian tubes. When this
lining or membrane becomes inflamed it is called Salpingitis or
Inflammation of the Fallopian tubes. Salpingitis is derived from two
words: Salping, meaning tube; ltis, meaning inflammation; Fallopian was
the discoverer. Thus we have Salping(x)itis, or Inflammation of the
Fallopian tubes. Unfortunately in medical description it is generally
called Salpingitis.
