An unusual case of intra-abdominal testicular torsion: role of laparoscopy


An unusual case of intra-abdominal testicular torsion: role of laparoscopy



African Journal of Paediatric Surgery: Ajps 10(1): 29-31



ISSN/ISBN: 0189-6725

PMID: 23519854

DOI: 10.4103/0189-6725.109386

The authors report a case of intra-abdominal testicular torsion, where laparoscopy has been useful for diagnosis and surgical management. A boy was presented with a left impalpable testis. Laparoscopy revealed a twisted spermatic cord at the inlet pelvis, which ended in a testicular remnant located in the sub-umbilical area. After orchiectomy, the pathologist confirmed testicular atrophy. Diagnosis of intra-abdominal testicular torsion should be considered in patients with impalpable testis and abdominal pain, but could not be excluded in those with no symptoms.
