Synopsis: 
This study reported six paediatric cases of isolated tubal torsion treated with different surgical techniques in Dr. Behçet Uz Children’s Hospital between 2000-2016. Salpingectomy was performed for 3 patients and detorsion without salpingectomy for the other 3 patients. No recurrence was observed during follow-up. Despite several therapeutic surgical options, main aim in this rare surgical emergency should be tubal conservation for future fertility.
