Perinatal torsion of spermatic cord.


A case of torsion of the testis in the newborn is presented. A review of the literature indicates that this condition tends to occur in babies weighing over 3,000 Gm., born of primigravida; the involved testicle is usually nontender, and frequently there is adhesion of the skin to the mass. Controversies in regard to methods of treatment are discussed.
