Ovarian Torsion after Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

We here report two case of ovarian torsion We checked the presence of all possible factors that could explain the onset of the syndrome. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is almost exclusively associated with ovulation induction with gonadotropins[3] OHSS continues to be a serious complication of assisted reproductive therapy (ART), with no universally agreed upon best method of prevention If OHSS is diagnosed, the etiology should be determined in order to focus the treatment and avoid future complications. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is rather frequent (1–5%) in women submitted to superovulation with gonadotropins for in vitro fertilization (IVF). Multiple pregnancy, gestational trophoblastic disease, primary hypothyroidism, thyroid-stimulating hormone/ gonadotropin-secreting adenomas, and mutations of the FSHR gene may trigger spontaneous OHSS
