Confirmed Testicular Torsion in A 54 year old : A case report

Author(s):Abdulkareem Aloqbawi*

Testicular torsion is defined as the wrapping of one testicle or both or the spermatic cord around themselves inside the scrotum, and it is considered a urological emergency due to the increased risk of vascular ischemia of the testis. Young patients who are diagnosed with testicular torsion usually present with acute painful scrotal swelling that suddenly starts, on the other hand, elderly can be presented with only scrotal swelling as our patient presented. In this case report, we describe a rare presentation of a 54‐year‐old gentleman who presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with a history of 5 days of scrotal swelling and was diagnosed to have unilateral testicular torsion.
