    Abstract:

    The Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) is a complication of ovulation enhancing technologies that is becoming more prevalent with increasing use of these techniques in infertile women. In this report, we describe a 36-year-old woman who presented to the Emergency Department with hemodynamic compromise secondary to OHSS. The OHSS is characterized by ovarian enlargement, ascites, electrolyte disturbances, hypotension, and thromboembolic events. This case illustrates a serious complication of techniques used to enhance fertility.
