Abstract

Testicular torsion is a common important urological emergency. Testicles usually undergo various degrees of rotation in a medial (inward) direction. Manual detorsion is a critical maneuver, allowing to prevent testis viability in patients with delay to get into the operation room. Testis torsion rarely occurs in lateral direction. It is important for patients undergoing manual detorsion. Hereby, we present a case of atypical lateral (outward) torsion who performed preoperative manual derotation.
