Spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in a patient presenting with missed abortion|
Aali, Bibi Shahnaz & Narooi, Shahin
Spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome rarely occurs during
pregnancy and is usually associated with high levels of human chorionic
gonadotropin, in conditions such as molar or multifetal pregnancies.
Here we report spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation in a patient
presenting with missed abortion at 16th week of gestation, when serum ß-subunit
human chorionic gonadotropin level detected to be 400 milliunit per milliliter.
Evacuation and curettage was performed and the ovaries returned to about normal size
two months later.
Spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome can develop even in
the presence of very low levels of hCG in missed abortion.
