Abstract  
Adnexal torsion occurs when the ovary and fallopian tube twist on the axis created between the infundibulopelvic ligament and the utero-ovarian ligament. The symptoms are mostly unspecific and diagnosis is therefore not simple. Early diagnosis is essential to preserve organ function and fertility. The increased use of assisted reproductive technologies has led to an increase in the risk of adnexal torsion, particularly in pregnant women or women with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). A gestational age eight-week pregnant woman who received in vitro fertilization (IVF) came to the clinic and was suspected of adnexal torsion. The patient underwent an operation and the biopsy histologically confirmed ischemia. Here the authors report a case with comparison to other studies, the early diagnosis, and early operation that could save adnexa.
