Abstract
Isolated tubal torsion is a rare disease that causes acute lower abdominal pain. In most of cases, the ovary and the fallopian tube are together twisted due to an ovarian tumor, but the fallopian tube alone is rarely twisted. Tubal torsion mainly occurs in fertile women, and it rarely occurs prior to menarche and during menopause. We experienced a case where isolated tubal torsion occurred in a perimenopausal female with total abdominal hysterectomy, while the findings showed a normal ovary. We report this case with a brief review of related literature.
Key Words: Isolated tubal torsion, Hydrosalpinx, Total abdominal hysterectomy
