Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is usually a complication of assisted reproductive techniques, more rarely an affection complicating a spontaneous gestation. The cause of hyper responsiveness of ovaries to the gonadotropins used in the controlled stimulation is still largely unknown. In contrast, a few cases of spontaneous hyperstimulation syndrome have been elucidated by the identification of mutations of the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) receptor, broadening its specificity and… CONTINUE READING
