Ovarian hyperstimuation syndrome (OHSS) is the most serious complication of controlled ovarian stimulation. It causes symptoms such as, ovarian enlargement, ascites, pleural effusion, pericardial effusion, hemoconcentration, electrolyte imbalance, and thromboembolism. Although proper management is done, thromboembolism could occur and is difficult to predict. Moreover it can cause death. Consequently thromboembolism is the most dangerous complication of OHSS. We experienced a OHSS patient with thromboembolism of the brain after having IVF-ET.
Key Words: Ovarian hyperstimuation syndrome; Subacute embolism of brain
