Isolated torsion of the fallopian tube is an uncommon entity. Given the difficulties involved in the preoperative diagnosis, the ultrasound findings characteristic of this anomaly are not widely known. We present a case of tubal torsion associated with a cyst, describing the ultrasound images in our case and those reported in the literature.
