Abstract: Let $ E$ be an elliptic curve defined over $ \mathbb{Q}$ and let $ G = E(\mathbb{Q})_{\textup {tors}}$ be the associated torsion subgroup. We study, for a given $ G$, which possible groups $ G \subseteq H$ could appear such that $ H=E(K)_{\textup {tors}}$, for $ [K:\mathbb{Q}]=4$ and $ H$ is one of the possible torsion structures that occur infinitely often as torsion structures of elliptic curves defined over quartic number fields.
