Answer

In one study of 523 patients presenting to the ED with acute scrotum, no single clinical finding had 100% sensitivity for the presence of testicular torsion, but all patients with testicular torsion had one or more of the following [10] :

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Pain duration of less than 24 hours

  • High position of the testis

  • Abnormal cremasteric reflex
