Case Study
The article presents a case study of an 18-year-old man suffering form left testicular pain. On examination, the left scrotum of the patient is erythematous and mildly oedematous while the upper pole is extremely tender. Moreover, the bilateral scrotal exploration that has been given to the patient shows that the left testis is to be cyanosed and the cord to be twisted 540° anticlockwise. Furthermore, detorsion, orchidopexy and drainage of serous-colored hydrocele has been performed bilaterally.
