Radiology Case Reports
We present the clinical presentation, sonography, CT, and MR imaging as well as correlative intra-operative and gross pathological findings of ovarian torsion in a 14-year-old girl. Our findings are discussed in the context of prior imaging studies performed for the evaluation of ovarian torsion. Ovarian torsion is not an uncommon cause of acute abdominal pain in children and teenage girls. Diagnosis of this entity can be difficult based on clinical presentation or on imaging appearance alone.
