Adnexal torsion in pregnancy represents an obstetrical emergency. However, the diagnosis is often delayed due to nonspecific clinical findings leading to maternal morbidity as well as, fetal morbidity and mortality. We present an interesting case of adnexal torsion in a first trimester pregnant patient who developed adnexal infarction and required salpingo-oophorectomy.
