Adnexal torsion is a surgical emergency that can lead to ovarian damage or infertility if it is not treated in time.
It is important to know the normal findings on transabdominal ultrasonography, the typical findings that can suggest torsion, as well as those of other entities that can mimic torsion that can benefit from conservative management.
Nevertheless, the diagnosis can be difficult, especially in patients with ovarian or paraovarian masses, in whom the highly suggestive clinical findings make surgical management prudent.
