Singapore Med J. 2001 May;42(5):228-9.


Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) is a common problem associated with modern In-Vitro Fertilisation techniques (IVF). However, torsion of a hyperstimulated ovary occurring after IVF is a much rarer event. In this case report, we will describe the laparoscopic management of a pregnant patient with a twisted hyperstimulated ovary after an IVF programme.
