Isolated torsion of the fallopian tube is extremely rare and difficult to diagnose, requires a coelioscopy, or a laparotomy in centers which do not have coelioscpie; often carried out too tardily, to allow the conservation of the horn. We report two observations of isolated torsion of the fallopian tube and we recall through the two clinical cases the diagnostic difficulties, the useful complementary examinations, the treatment and the causes of this pathology which must be systematically evoked in front of any acute abdominal syndrome in order to hope for an early surgical treatment and if possible conservative.
