In brief: PID
Inflammation or infection of the tube causes a pelvic infection, also terms PID or pelvic inflammatory disease.
It can be a very severe infection. Sometimes the tube is chronically inflamed and may be swollen and enlarged, called a hydrosalpinx. Any infection of the cervix, uterus, tubes, appendix, or colon can cause this.

In brief: Salpingitis
Salpingitis is inflammation of a fallopian tube.
This can result in later blockage - a hydrosalpinx or salpingitis isthmica nodosum (sin) - blockage at the uterus. There are effective treatments for salpingitis - see your gynecologist.
