Ovarian torsion in infertility management - Missing the diagnosis means losing the ovary: A high price to pay

J Hum Reprod Sci. 2011 Jan;4(1):39-42. doi: 10.4103/0974-1208.82359.


Ovarian torsion is a rare entity and the diagnosis is commonly missed. Here we present a series of two cases of ovarian torsion. First case followed the in vitro fertilization treatment, along with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, where even with timely intervention and laparoscopy, we had to compromise one ovary. Second case followed the ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination - where timely intervention helped us to save the ovary.

Keywords: Color Doppler sonography; ovarian hyperstimulation; ovarian torsion.
