An autoamputated fetal adnexal torsion is an extremely rare pathology in newborns that is frequently misdiagnosed as an ovarian cyst. Herein we present two cases of prenatally diagnosed fetal adnexal torsion that were successfully managed by laparoscopy. These cases suggest that this condition can be successfully managed by surgery, even in the neonatal period.
