Torsion of the testis is a true surgical emergency in paediatric age group. Prompt recognition of the condition and immediate surgical intervention is the only hope for testicular salvage. The condition becomes all the more important when this occurs in an undescended testis as the diagnosis is often delayed, and therefore the treatment too. A six-month old infant presented with the torsion of an undescended testis. Even prompt exploration could not avoid the necrosis and orchidectomy was done. Therefore to avoid this almost unsalvageable condition the orchiopexy must be considered at an earlier age.
