Abstract

We reported a case of torsion of the undescended testis in a 9-month-old boy which was diagnosed with 99mTc testicular scin­tigraphy. The scan showed diffuse increased activity in the location of the undescended testis and no photopenic area was visible. At surgery, torsion of the undescended testis was detected and fixed.
