Answer

Patients often present with severe, intermittent, colicky, unilateral pelvic or lower abdominal pain, frequently associated with nausea and vomiting. The diagnosis is often delayed because the presentation of ovarian torsion can resemble those of other disease entities, such as appendicitis or renal colic. [28, 30]
