PREVALENCE OF TESTICULAR TORSION IN ADOLESCENT BOYS

Muhammad Khaqan Khalid, Babar Shahzad, Zain Shahid

Twisting of spermatic cord contents resulting in absence of blood supply to the ipsilateral testis. It is a urological emergency and requires prompt diagnosis and treatment to preserve the affected testis and future fertility. In this cross sectional study at DHQ and General Hospital, Faisalabad, mean age of children was 8.64 ± 4.08 years. Thus, grey scale and color Doppler ultrasonography is the imaging modality of choice in diagnosing the testicular torsion and hence by the virtue of prompt ultrasound diagnosis, testicular loss and infertility can be avoided in the majority of cases.

Key words: Testicular torsion, bell clapper deformity, ultrasonography, adolescent boys.
