Torsion of testis -- medical emergency

Torsion of the testis is a medical emergency which occurs in young boys of age group 5- 15 years of age. It is usually sudden in onset and is associated with severe pain, vomiting and groin pain. It must be differentiated from acute epididymo-orchitis which occurs in young adults characterised by moderate pain, fever and dysuria. Clinical examination will help in coming to a diagnosis.
