BACKGROUND: Massive ovarian edema is a benign enlargement of the ovary caused by accumulation of fluid occurring mainly in young women. Most cases are thought to result from venous and lymphatic obstruction.
CASE REPORT: We treated a 40-year-old multiparous pregnant woman with massive ovarian edema who had been received clomiphene citrate. She was admitted at 13th week of pregnancy for acute pelvic pain. Left oophorectomy was performed, and pathologic examination disclosed massive ovarian edema. Our report is the first case of massive ovarian edema with pregnancy after ovulation induction using clomiphene citrate.
