Cystadenofibromas (CAF) and adenofibromas (AF) are rare benign gynecologic neoplasms of epithelial origin. They can be composed predominantly of solid fibrous tissue, adenofibromas, or contain cystic components, as seen in cystadenofibromas; which can be further classified by their epithelial cell type (serous, mucinous, etc.). They most commonly arise from the ovary; however, CAF/AF associated with the fallopian tube have also been reported. CAF/AF is typically asymptomatic and found incidentally. Like other adnexal and ovarian masses, patients are at increased risk of ovarian/adnexal torsion, with increasing risk with lesion size. Herein, we present the case of a patient with isolated torsion of a fallopian tube with associated torsed paratubal serous cystadenofibroma. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of isolated torsion of a fallopian tube with associated para-tubal cystadenofibroma.
