TORSION OF FALLOPIAN TUBE, FIMBRIAL CYST: A RARE CASE REPORTAbstract
Fallopian tube torsion or fimbrial cyst torsion is rare, therefore diagnosis may be delayed. Isolated twisting of fallopian tubes is an uncommon event. The frequency is 1/1,500,000 women. Right fallopian tube is most commonly affected. The condition is frequently misdiagnosed with acute appendicitis or ovarian torsion. The torsion of fallopian tube and para-ovarian cyst is usually seen in reproductive age group. The aim is to report a case of huge fimbrial (paraovarian) cyst in a 35 year old nulligravid women, which presented with acute abdominal pain suggestive of torsion of ovarian cyst and also to increase the awareness of surgeons for better diagnosis and immediate intervention.
