Gray-Scale and Color Doppler Ultrasound Imaging Findings of an Ovarian Inguinal Hernia and Torsion of the Herniated Ovary: A Case ReportAydin, Ramazan MD*; Polat, Ahmet Veysel MD*; Ozaydin, Ilkay MD*; Aydin, Gulten MD†Pediatric Emergency Care: March 2013 - Volume 29 - Issue 3 - p 364–365 doi: 10.1097/PEC.0b013e318285465c Illustrative Cases Abstract Author Information Abstract: Inguinal hernia is extremely rare among girls. The hernia sac may sometimes involve intestinal structures, but ovaries in the sac are uncommon. Early diagnosis of a possible ovarian torsion is essential because potential amenable benefits can be achieved with surgery. A baby girl was admitted to our pediatric emergency unit with the complaints of swelling and erythema of the left groin. Then gray-scale ultrasonography and color Doppler ultrasonography was performed immediately at the emergency radiology room. In our case, ovarian torsion was diagnosed by gray-scale ultrasonography and color Doppler ultrasonography. After the diagnosis of ovarian torsion, the patient underwent surgery. It is possible to diagnose inguinal emergencies by high-resolution ultrasonography and color Doppler ultrasonography.
