Mature cystic teratoma of the fallopian tube diagnosed preoperatively with computed tomography and ultrasound: A case report.

Mature cystic teratoma of the fallopian tube is extremely rare, with fewer than 100 cases reported in the English literature. Clinical symptoms are nonspecific, and the diagnosis is most often made after surgical resection. A preoperative diagnosis has the potential to aid with surgical planning and patient counseling. We present a case of a large completely intratubal mature cystic teratoma in a 40-year-old woman who presented to her primary care provider with the gradual onset of right lower quadrant/pelvic pain. The patient's symptoms prompted evaluation with computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound. Imaging showed a dilated right fallopian tube containing fluid, macroscopic fat, and calcifications, facilitating the preoperative diagnosis of mature cystic teratoma of the fallopian tube. Because of her symptoms, she elected to undergo salpingectomy and the diagnosis was pathologically confirmed. The patient's symptoms resolved following surgery.
