Among the most frequent specimens at the pediatric surgical pathology bench, orchiectomy performed after testicular torsion deserves significant attention. Multiple implications, including fertility, legal complications, possibility of occult lesion, and others, need to be considered. Furthermore, torsion of testicular and other appendices represents common urological emergencies frequently encountered in surgical pathology. Here we present a review of testicular torsion and infarction… Expand

This patient had lower abdominal pain and unilateral scrotal pain and had surgically confirmed bilateral torsion, and bilateral testicular sonographic abnormalities were identified. Expand
Traumatic torsion of the testis.
TLDR
A retrospective review of the charts of 138 patients explored for acute scrotal pain at the hospital revealed a history of scrotAL trauma in 3 of 57 patients with testicular torsion and 7 of 73 with torsions of the testicular appendages. Expand

TLDR
Five cases are described in which an enlarged, homogeneously echogenic appendix testis was seen medial or posterior to the head of the epididymis, and scanning in the coronal and transverse planes above the testis proved useful in locating the enlarged, twisted appendix. Expand
