Ultrasound scrotum was performed suggestive of thick-walled cystic lesion along right spermatic cord with internal echoes and septae approximately 3.1 X 1.8 cm. Based on the clinical history and examination, surgery revealed torsion testes confirmed by histological examination. The patient was discharged after the operation.
