Özet

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a life- threatening complication of controlled ovarian stimulation. One of the main symptoms of OHSS is ascites. Treatment is symptomatic with resolution of the symptoms over days to weeks. We report a case of severe OHSS with persistent ascites 18 months after the diagnosis. Persistent ascites secondary to OHSS was diagnosed and single dose leuprolide acetate depot 11.25 mg was administered. At follow-up, no ascites was observed.
