GARRIDO ABAD, Pablo et al. Intrauterine testicular torsion. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.9, pp.1125-1127. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We present the clinical case of an intrauterine testicular torsion. Methods/Results: Three days old boy complaining of testicular pain and scrotum enlargement with the diagnosis of intrauterine testicular torsion. Left testicular extirpation and right fixation were performed. Conclusions: We analyze cases reported, clinical diagnosis and therapeutic options. Testicular torsion can be misdiagnosed with other pathologies like tumors, testicular infarctions, hydrocele, etc. We should always consider it a surgical emergency. The future fertility of the patient can be compromised.

Keywords : Testicle; Torsion; Intrauterine.
