Gray-scale and color Doppler ultrasound imaging findings of an ovarian inguinal hernia and torsion of the herniated ovary: a case report.

Inguinal hernia is extremely rare among girls. The hernia sac may sometimes involve intestinal structures, but ovaries in the sac are uncommon. Early diagnosis of a possible ovarian torsion is essential because potential amenable benefits can be achieved with surgery. A baby girl was admitted to our pediatric emergency unit with the complaints of swelling and erythema of the left groin. Then gray-scale ultrasonography and color Doppler ultrasonography was performed immediately at the emergency radiology room. In our case, ovarian torsion was diagnosed by gray-scale ultrasonography and color Doppler ultrasonography. After the diagnosis of ovarian torsion, the patient underwent surgery. It is possible to diagnose inguinal emergencies by high-resolution ultrasonography and color Doppler ultrasonography.
