Abstract

Urgent sonographic examination of the groin was performed in 58 patients under the age of two years. Accurate diagnosis was done in conditions such as: incarcerated inguinal hernia, twisted undescended testis, incarcerated ovary in inguinal hernia and others. Ultrasonography facilitated decision-making and differentiation between surgical and non-surgical conditions.
