Ovarian torsion is a gynecologic emergency and should be diagnosed and treated immediately. However, making the diagnosis can be challenging because the symptoms aren't specific. Isolated torsion of the fallopian tube is relatively less common but may also occur and generate an negative impact on tubal function. They occur for two main reasons, hypermobility of the ovary and adnexal mass.
HOW IS OVARIAN TORSION DIAGNOSED?
An ovary with a mass or cyst is more prone to twisting owing to its asymmetry.
