Bilateral intrauterine torsion of the testes and neonatal testicular torsion are rare conditions that sometimes result in a catastrophic event. Surgical exploration is mandatory and sometimes a second-look management should be considered. After describing a rare condition, the authors came to the conclusion that bilateral orchidectomy should be performed only in patients with bilateral necrotic testes.
