The first case of dVIN was described in 1961 by Gosling and colleagues (2) and termed intraepithelial carcinoma, simplex type.
Moreover, in our case, synchronous occurrence of intraepithelial carcinoma was observed in the endometrium and fallopian tube.
Despite the remaining uncertainties, the current study does confirm previous results that had suggested that many high-grade serious cancers in the pelvis are preceded by abnormal cells (lesions) occurring in the fallopian tubes, called serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma (STIC).

Type II tumors are predominantly serous carcinomas and are commonly estrogen independent, mostly arising in atrophic endometrium and deriving from intraepithelial carcinoma as a precancerous lesion.
[2] But there is a wide spectrum of its presentation; they are mucinous cystadenoma, mucinous cystic tumour of low malignant potential, mucinous cystic tumour of low malignant potential with intraepithelial carcinoma and microscopically or frankly invasive mucinous cystadenocarcinoma.

Serous endometrial carcinomas may be preceded by precancerous cells with a so-called p53 signature, by endometrial glandular dysplasia, or by endometrial intraepithelial carcinoma [reviewed in (45)].

Serous carcinomas develop from "endometrial intraepithelial carcinoma," a lesion representing malignant transformation of the endometrial surface epithelium [10].
In pathologic analyses of fallopian tubes removed prophylactically from women with a BRCA 1 or 2 mutation, investigators found a significant rate of serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma. (8) Researchers began to study the genetics of these cancers and concluded that, in women with a BRCA mutation, high-grade serous carcinomas may arise from the distal fallopian tube.
