The presentation of this case concerns a pregnant woman who during the 39th week, was admitted to our clinic in order to undergo a scheduled caesarean section. The presence of a serous cyst in the anatomical position of the left iliac fossa was known from the beginning of the pregnancy, which otherwise progressed uncomplicated. Upon admission to the clinic, the pregnant woman reported a mild, diffuse abdominal pain for about three days ago, without signs of labor onset. The preoperative laboratory examination was without any pathological findings. Intraoperatively, the presence of a sub-round formation with a brownish-red tinge and a smooth outer surface, along with the corresponding fallopian tube, was found in the left parametrium, without the involvement of the ovary. The histological examination of the surgical specimen established the diagnosis of individual fallopian tube torsion, accompanied by a paratubal cyst. After an uncomplicated postoperative course, the patient was discharged on the 4th postoperative day.
