Abstract:   (143 Views)

Isolated fallopian tube torsion is a rare situation in reproductive-aged women. The gold standard for diagnosis is laparoscopic evaluation, and the treatment of choice is salpingectomy without oophorectomy to preserve fertility. Still, inpatient with a presentation of the acute abdomen or hemodynamically unstable, urgent laparotomy is the treatment of choice. Here, we reported a 15-year-old virgin girl presented with acute abdominal pain and evidence of adnexal torsion on the abdominal ultrasonography. Urgent laparotomy revealed an isolated right fallopian tube torsion. Due to irreversible necrosis of the tube, right salpingectomy was performed. It's crucial to consider isolated fallopian tube torsion as a potential cause of abdominal pain in reproductive-aged women and use appropriate diagnostic measures to diagnose it early and preserve their future fertility.
