Ovarian torsion has a bimodal age distribution occurring mainly in young women (15-30 years) and in postmenopausal women. Approximately 20% of the cases occur during pregnancy. Patients with ovarian torsion often present with sudden onset of sharp and usually unilateral lower abdominal pain, in 70% of cases accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
