In brief: Infection

Infection or damage to the fallopian tubes are the precursors to a hydrosalpinx, fluid in the fallopian tube.
Common sources are chlamydia, gonorrhea, endometriosis, or a ruptured appendix.

In brief: Usually infection

Most of the time when there is fluid in the fallopian tube, called a hydrosalpinx, this is the result of damage to the fallopian tubes in the past.
The most common sources of that damage are a previous infection, endometriosis, or surgical scar tissue.
