Fistula between fallopian tube and skin, i.e., tubocutaneous, is extremely a rare entity. Very few cases were reported in the literature. We report a case of a 38-year-old woman who presented with chronic discharging left inguinal wound secondary to genital tuberculosis (TB) for which she had taken 6 months antitubercular treatment (ATT). It was diagnosed as tubocutaneous fistula on computed tomography (CT) sinogram. Complete surgical resection in the form of salpingectomy or salpingo-oophorectomy with complete fistula excision and supplementing it with long-term ATT is the treatment of choice in such patients.
