Abstract

Capsule: A case of severe late onset ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) with prolonged ascites production. Difficulties of differential diagnosis and management. Objective: This report describes a case of extremely prolonged, severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Results: 17 litres of ascites have been removed from the abdominal cavity by repeated paracenteses until the 25th week of pregnancy, which progressed after the complete resolution of symptoms to the 34th week, when cesarean section was done. Conclusion: Severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome can occasionally follow an unusually prolonged course. Chronic formation of abundant ascites, the presence of ovarian enlargement and elevated levels of certain tumour markers might raise the probability of ovarian cancer. Adequate differential diagnosis and management resulted in delivery of a healthy newborn.
