A case of testicular torsion is described in a sixty-four-year-old man. Although unusual in this age group, the diagnosis of testicular torsion should be considered in older patients presenting with unilateral testicular pain. Early recognition and surgical intervention may reverse testicular ischemia and avert unnecessary orchiectomy.
