    Case report of ovarian torsion in the first trimester of pregnancy

    Donalda Surducki*

    Ovarian torsion refers to the complete or partial rotation of the ovary on its ligamentous supports, often resulting in impedance of its blood supply. It is one of the most common gynecologic surgical emergencies and may affect females of all ages.

    Torsion of the ovary in the pregnancy is very rare and it commonly occurs during the third trimester. It is frequently associated with ovary stimulation in In-vitro-fertilisation (IVF)or Ovary masses.

    Here we present the case of a 33 year-old GII PI with 11 weeks+2 days of pregnancy with right abdominal pain.

    Gynaecologic examination detected a circa 5 cm cyst and the torsion of the right ovary.

    Laparascopy and right salpingo-oophorectomy were performed.
