Abstract

A case of testicular torsion one year after orchiopexy is presented. The occurrence of testicular torsion following surgery is a rare event which has the potential for diagnostic misadventures. To better delineate this condition, we performed a literature review of all reported cases of recurrent testicular torsion. Thirteen reported patients with testicular torsion following orchiopexy are presented and discussed.
