Abstract

A case of unilateral fallopian tube torsion following Pomeroy tubal ligation, as well as a review of the literature, is presented. Although uncommon, this entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of abdominal pain in the female patient. Early surgical intervention by means of laparoscopy is mandatory in order to correctly diagnose and treat this complication.
