Neonatal testicular torsion is rare, and is distinguished both clinically and anatomically from torsion in the older age group. We describe 2 cases of neonatal torsion treated in different ways, which reflect the current controversy regarding the timing of surgical exploration, the need for orchiectomy, as well as the indications for contralateral orchiopexy. The distinction between prenatal and the postnatal subgroups is emphasized and a policy of treatment is proposed.
