The fallopian tube is the only structure in the female genital tract with a ciliated columnar epithelium; the beating of the cilia helps move the egg into the uterus. This fact is also sometimes clinically helpful since dilated and deformed fallopian tubes can be microscopically distinguished from cystic ovarian tumors by the presence of the cilia. The cervix (choice A) and vagina (choice E) are lined by squamous epithelium. The endometrium (choice B) is lined by columnar epithelium (although a few ciliated cells may be present). The covering of the ovary (choice D) is cuboidal epithelium, and cysts within the ovary can be lined by cuboidal or non-ciliated columnar epithelium.
