Uterine torsion is a rare condition which is part of a spectrum of gynecological emergencies.

It is therefore important that the radiologist is familiar with recognizing computed tomography features of uterine torsion. We share our findings in a patient with uterine torsion in a non-gravid uterus, diagnosed on contrast-enhanced computed tomography with multiplanar reconstruction.
