A case of prenatal diagnosis of fetal ovarian hyperstimulation in a pregnancy of 35 weeks is reported. Two large cystic septate ovaries with no internal vegetations were observed in the fetal abdomen. The fetus was macrosomic and the remaining morphology was normal. Polyhydramnios and placental thickening were present, with no other macro- or microscopic alterations. The only significant maternal change detected was elevation of blood beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG) levels. Evaluation of the newborn confirmed the prenatal diagnosis, with progressive and spontaneous regression of fetal ovarian volume and of maternal serum beta-hCG occurring after delivery.
