Abstract

Testicular torsion is a surgical emergency which requires early surgical intervention. A delay in surgery may end up in gangrene of the testes. Orchidopexy is the surgery of choice if a surgeon is unable to do manual detorsion of the testis. Torsion is usually anticlockwise in case of left testis and clockwise in case of right testis. The case report shown here is a case of left testicular torsion where the patient reported to opd after 1 day of the torsion. Exploratory surgery of scrotum was performed under general anesthesia. As early necrosis of the left testis had happened already, orchidectomy was performed for left testis and right testis was anchored to the scrotal wall. Photographs of the testis were captured with the written consent of patient.
