Abstract

Testicular torsion is a well-known urological emergency most common in the paediatric population; however, testicular torsion is not all-or-none phenomenon and can be of complete or partial or intermittent types. Intermittent testicular torsion is rare and can be misdiagnosed even in a paediatric population. Testicular torsion in adults is less common and intermittent Testicular torsion in adults is even less reported and may not be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute Testicular pain, leading to misdiagnosis.
