Neonatal adrenal hemorrhage may rarely present as scrotal hematoma. This condition can simulate a torsion of the testis requiring an immediate surgical exploration of the scrotum. Ultrasonographic study of the abdomen can find out intraperitoneal or retroperitoneal bleeding in order to avoid unnecessary surgical intervention. The case of a newborn with right adrenal hemorrhage presenting as left scrotal hematoma is reported.
