Abstract

Post-hysterectomy fallopian tube prolapse is a rare complication with only 80 cases described since 1902. Symptoms are non-specific and often of delayed onset. Final diagnosis is confirmed by vaginal biopsy with salpingectomy being the treatment of choice, preferably performed laparoscopically. Following surgery, complete symptom resolution is usually observed and no recurrence has been reported.
