Cystadenofibromas of the fallopian tubes are very rare benign tumors and very few cases have been reported in the literature worldwide. Usually, the tumor is asymptomatic, and for almost all cases reported, the tumors were incidentally discovered during surgery for other genital pathology. We report the case of a 30-year-old woman with a serous cystadenofibroma of the fallopian tube, presenting with chronic abdominal pain and secondary infertility. The diagnosis of tubal tumor was formulated before surgery and confirmed during laparoscopic surgery. Both 3D ultrasound and HDlive were useful tools for the diagnosis. The ultrasound diagnosis was helpful in planning appropriate surgical management.
