Abstract Tubal torsion is a very rare event, especially in pregnancy. We present a case of a patient of 20 weeks gestation that was admitted to our clinic with acute abdomen. Radiological and biochemical investigations did not reveal the cause of abdominal pain which resulted in laparatomic exploration. During the operation, the paratubal cystic mass, previously explored by ultrasonographic examination, and the left fallopian tube were found twisted among themselves. Salpingectomy was performed due to the necrotic appearance of the fallopian tube.
