Abstract

We report a rare clinical case of recurrent isolated torsion of the Fallopian tube. An 18 year old woman presented with acute right lower quadrant pain, nausea and vomiting. Torsion of the Fallopian tube was detected by laparoscopy and detorsion was performed. Two years later, a second similar episode of pelvic pain recurred. Having in mind the first episode, diagnosis was facilitated and detorsion was performed in accordance with the patient's wishes. However, the dilemma of ideal management of recurrent cases of torsion of the same tube remains open for discussion. The possibility of torsion of the Fallopian tube and recurrent torsion of the tube, although rare, should be considered in any patient with acute onset of lower abdominal pain.
