Abstract

We report a case of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) in a 37-year-old female who had recently underwent assisted reproductive technology involving oocyte retrieval. Her emergency department (ED) presentation, clinical course, and a discussion of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome are also presented. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is a critical diagnosis in emergency medicine, and emergency physicians must consider it in the differential for any female nontrauma patient presenting with hypotension, tachycardia, and abdominal pain.
