Further comments on the paper

Comments: This case report and review of the literature presents a case of diagnosis and management of a left ovarian torsion (OT) in a twin pregnancy of a woman with a communication barrier due to different language speaking, with normal term delivery. This study holds significance as there are only a few reports of left-sided OT at third trimester twin pregnancy in the literature. Moreover, ovarian torsion represents a diagnostic challenge for clinicians and radiologists because of its lack of pathognomonic symptoms and imaging findings.


Q: Would you recommend this manuscript for further publication?
