We present a rare case of acute abdominal pain in a nulliparous woman: Isolated fallopian tube torsion (IFTT). A 39 years nulliparous woman came with a two-day history of acute, constant left lower abdominal pain. The pelvic ultrasound was suggestive of a tubo-ovarian abscess. On laparoscopy, a torted left gangrenous fallopian tube was noted. The histology was suggestive of salpingitis-isthmica-nodosa.
