  • Ovarian torsion in a patient with müllerian agenesis: increased risk? Journal of pediatric and adolescent gynecology Sullivan, E. M., Golden, N. H., Adams Hillard, P. J. 2012; 25 (6): e125-8


    Patients with müllerian agenesis may be at an increased risk of ovarian torsion due to the absence of the utero-ovarian ligament and the fact that the ovary is not tethered to a fixed and relatively non-mobile structure, the uterus.We report a case of a 14-year-old female with abdominal pain who had a physical examination suggestive of müllerian agenesis. Imaging was non-diagnostic and demonstrated an abdominal mass. Emergent surgery revealed ovarian torsion.We present this case of ovarian torsion and müllerian agenesis, in order to highlight the association and to review potential risk factors.
