An 8-year-old boy presented with 2-day history of right testicular pain increasing in severity. There were no other symptoms and no history of trauma. Clinically the right hemiscrotum was red and slightly larger than the left side. It was tender to touch with no thickening of the cord and the testis was not elevated.
An exploration was done under GA which showed grossly edematous head of the epidydimis with ischemic, torsed appendix of the testis. This was excised and histology confirmed necrotic appendix of the testis.
