Abstract

ROMANO, Salomon V.; HERNAN, Haime S.  and  FREDOTOVICH, Norberto. Painless inter epididymal testicular torsion of the spermatic cord. Int. braz j urol. [online]. 2007, vol.33, n.1, pp. 77-79. ISSN 1677-5538.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-55382007000100013.

Inter epididymal testicular torsion of the spermatic cord is extremely rare and usually diagnosed at surgery. We present an unusual case of spermatic cord torsion in a 14-year-old male patient. It is important to highlight that the torsion occurred only on the distal half of the epididymis leaving the head untwisted and edematous. In addition, the fact that this condition was painless made this case extremely rare and motivated our presentation.

Keywords : testis; epididymis; torsion.
