Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Adult testicular torsion is thought to be rare if not relatively unusual. The rarity could be an underestimation since there are many episodes of missed torsions and misdiagnosis with other conditions of acute scrotum despite the now widespread ultra sound availability that are being reported in the literature. Such a misdiagnosis is herein reported of a 41-year-old man.
