  • Testicular torsion is a common pediatric emergency. Predisposing factors and other risk factors for testicular torsion have not been fully elucidated. This case report highlights teenage brothers who each experienced right-sided testicular torsion at nearly the same age, just 1 year apart. Because of their parents' urgency in seeking medical attention, the affected testicles in both patients were salvaged. We also review the current literature in regards to etiology, inheritance, and patient and parental education.
