Differential diagnosis of acute scrotum especially with acute epididymis and testicular torsion should be made promptly, as testicular torsion is a true surgical emergency of the highest order. In this manuscript, two demonstrative cases introducing with acute scrotum and diagnosed with scintigraphy and color Doppler ultrasonography were presented to recall the knowledge.
