Isolated fallopian tube torsion is a rarely encountered gynecological condition during acute pelvic pain in a female of reproductive age. Its clinical diagnosis is very difficult or almost impossible. On preoperative ultrasound suspicion of isolated fallopian tube, torsion can be given. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may further improve confidence for diagnosis if MRI findings correlate with ultrasonography findings. Laparoscopy is necessary to establish the diagnosis. Isolated fallopian tube torsion should be suspected when a female presents with acute pelvic pain. Isolated fallopian tube torsion requires prompt intervention to save the adnexa.
