Isolated fallopian tube torsion (IFTT) is a rare clinical entity, especially in pregnancy. It is frequently misdiagnosed as acute appendicitis or ovarian torsion. We present an unusual case of IFTT occurring in early pregnancy, which was detected when patient presented for medical termination of pregnancy in family planning clinic. This case report highlights sub acute presentation of IFTT in early pregnancy which clinically presented as resolving appendicular lump.
