A 19-month-old boy presented with an impalpable right testis. At second-stage Fowler-Stephens laparoscopic orchidopexy, the testicle was found to be torted, a complication that has not been described previously. The procedure, known complications, possible reasons for torsion and possible techniques to avoid torsion occurring are reviewed.
