Serous cyst adenofibromas of the fallopian tubes are rare benign tumours. Only 18 cases have been reported worldwide [6]. They are usually asymptomatic or are incidentally found during evaluation of pain in abdomen (as in our case) or as co-incidental findings during other surgeries.

We report a case of acute torsion of hydrosalpinx of the right fallopian tube in a 26 year old female. During laparoscopy a large cystic mass measuring 7cms x 8cms was found to have undergone torsion along with the ipsilateral ovary. Laparoscopic right salpingectomy was done and the right ovary was salvaged. Histopathology showed serous cyst adenofibroma of right fallopian tube. We report this case because of its rarity of incidence and short review of literature and also to create awareness of such tumours to avoid aggressive surgery in younger patients and go for ovarian conservation [2].
