A case of adnexal torsion in premenarchal child is presented. Prompt diagnosis was made with the use of pelvic ultrasound and laparoscopy. The later was used for establishing the diagnosis and furthermore for untwisting the adnexa. We suggest that laparoscopy should precede laparotomy and that conservative detorsion should be done more liberally in the young patient.
