A severe case of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome: 65 liters of ascites aspirated in an on-going IVF-ET twin pregnancy.

Abstract

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is the most serious life-threatening iatrogenic complication of ovulation induction. Presented here is an unusual case where 62 l of intraperitoneal and 3.2 l of intrapleural fluid were aspirated in order to stabilize a severe life-threatening case of OHSS resulting from an on-going IVF-ET twin pregnancy.
