Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ovarian stimulation is a unique aid for patients treated for anovulation and an important tool in various assisted reproduction treatments. Clomiphene citrate, an orally active, non-steroidal triphenylethylene derivate, is a commonly prescribed agent for ovulation induction. Clomiphene citrate is considered a safe agent and has rarely been associated with significant side effects. This report describes a case of unilateral adnexal torsion after ovulation induction with clomiphene citrate; we performed unwinding of the adnexum, which appeared ischemic via laparoscopy. Unfortunately, the affected adnexum became hemorrhagic after this approach, which invariably led to its resection.
