Abstract

Neoplasms of the fallopian tube are extremely uncommon. In addition, the incidence of a mature teratoma of the fallopian tube with incomplete uterine mediastinum is extremely low. In the current case report, we present a case of mature cystic teratoma of the fallopian tube with incomplete uterine mediastinum in a 23-year-old female. This mass was noted on computed tomography (CT) scan and sonographic examination. The patient underwent left salpingectomy and uterine septum incision during surgery. One year later, the individual became pregnant.
