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 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.
