Adenexal torsion is partial or complete rotation of adenexa around its pedicle. Ovarian torsion occurs predominately in the reproductive age group. Diagnosis is based on the clinical and the radiological findings with color Doppler imaging showing decreased or absent blood flow in the ovarian parenchyma depending on the degree of torsion. If diagnosed early cystectomy can be done, however if the ovary becomes gangrenous oophorectomy may be required. Here we report a case of torsion of left ovarian cyst in 21 yrs old primigravida in her second trimester of pregnancy who presented in our emergency with complain of acute abdomen and vomiting since one day. She was diagnosed on the basis of clinical and ultrasonographic finding. Emergency laparotomy was planned and left salpingooophorectomy was done. Specimen was sent for histopathological examination which showed benign serous cystadenoma with unremarkable tube. Patient was kept under regular antenatal checkup. She delivered alive female baby of birth weight 3.0Kg at term by caesarean section.
