Torsion of the fallopian tube and ovary has an interesting and extensive history in the gynecologic literature. Frequent occurrence of this malady in children gives the topic added importance. Early diagnosis is made difficult by the symptoms, history, and physical findings that may be confusing and result in delayed initiation of a definitive therapy. Rapid and precise diagnosis of torsion is expected and necessary for early intervention to prevent loss of reproductive organs and function.
