Obturator hernia of the fallopian tube is extremely rare. Multidetector computed tomography of a 43-year-old nulliparous woman with sudden onset lower right abdominal pain showed a low-density mass in the right obturator canal suspected of being an obturator hernia of the uterine adnexa. She was diagnosed as having an incarcerated obturator hernia of the fallopian tube at operation and treated with prosthetic mesh. Obturator hernia of the fallopian tube is very rare, and all cases reported in the literature were localized on the right side, perhaps due to the lesser mobility of the left than the right fallopian tube.
