Case description

A hydrosalpinx can result from scarring caused by previous tubal surgery or an infection, such as a sexually transmitted disease. Another common cause of a hydrosalpinx is the presence of adhesions, which are areas of scar tissue on your pelvic organs that can get stuck together. This case suggest there may be a predisposition to hydrosalpinx and tubal torsion following tubal ligation if the fimbriated end of the fallopian tube becomes occluded. Awareness of this potential complication may lead to increased recognition and earlier intervention in patients who have undergone tubal ligation.
