Abstract

Pediatric patients of various ages, from infancy through adolescence, can have ovarian torsion. Torsion may not only be confined to the ovaries but may also involve the isolated cyst, tube, and even the uterus. In this pictorial review, we review the spectrum of torsion in pediatric (from infants to adolescents) female pelvis, emphasizing imaging methods.
