Background: Ovarian torsion is rare in the third trimester of pregnancy. It is likely to present with non-specific symptoms and can often be misdiagnosed as appendicitis or preterm labour. It is one of the most common gynaecologic surgical emergencies. Although the exact cause is unknown, a few risk factors predispose to ovarian torsion.
