Fallopian tube leiomyoma: a rare clinical entity.
USG reported Left adnexal mass simulating Left Ovarian Cyst (Fig. 1).The uterus was normal in size with thin endometrium and the endometrial cavity was empty.
[FIGURE 1 OMITTED]
The blood picture reveled Hb count 11 gram/dl, TLC 10, 200/cmm, (3-hcg 6 ng/ml, other tumour markers (CA 125, CEA, AFP, LDH) within normal limits.
With provisional diagnosis of Twisted Ovarian tumour (left) or degenerated subserous fibroid, we proceeded with the case. After counseling the family members for laparoscopy vs laparotomy, under G. A. laparoscopy was performed, which showed a mass in the left fallopian tube at the isthmic portion undergone torsion. The uterus, right tube and ovary were normal. After untwisting the mass LAVH with BSO was performed. The specimen clearly showed a left fallopian tube leiomyoma (Fig 2). Post- operative period was uneventful.

The histopathology report came out to be LEFT FALLOPIAN TUBE ADENOLEIOMYOMA at its isthmic portion without any features of malignancy.
Discussion and review of Literature: Leiomyomas of fallopian tube are rare, typically co- incidental findings at autopsy or unrelated surgical procedures.  They are mostly single, small and unilateral but may be of variable size from microscopic to more than 15 cm large.  They may grow excessively and undergo torsion or degenerations.  They are rarely diagnosed pre-operatively. Powerful USG could be helpful in diagnosing this condition, but laparoscopy can be used for definite diagnosis and managements Neither CT nor laparoscopy sometimes could specify the tumour where final diagnosis is made by biopsy.  In 2004 for the first time a case could be successfully managed by laparoscopy. 
CONCLUSION: Asymptomatic fallopian tube leiomyoma being chance-findings are very rare and symptomatic fallopian tube leiomyoma as in this case are still rarer. This condition should be kept in mind as a differential diagnosis of any adnexal mass.
