Abstract

Testicular torsion is a well known urological emergency most common in the paediatric population. However, testicular torsion can be complete, partial or intermittent. Intermittent testicular torsion is rare in adults and difficult to diagnose. We present a rare case on intermittent testicular torsion in a 35 year old man that was initially misdiagnosed but was later diagnosed by Spectral Doppler ultrasound.
