Testicular torsion is an acute emergency condition that warrants urgent diagnosis to save the testis from fatal infarction. We herein report a case of Testicular infarction due to testicular torsion in a 15 years old young boy. The purpose of presenting this case is to emphasize the early intervention of Color Doppler study of scrotum to avoid delayed surgical corrective measures which, if taken on time, could have saved the testis. We strongly recommend that Testis must be examined by the consulting physician in all patients presenting with nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain and if found tender, the immediate ultrasonography of the scrotum with color doppler imaging should be done. It should also be included in the differential diagnosis of the any lower abdomen pain on either side irrespective of absence of testicular tenderness or any local complaints.
