Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To report the occurrence of a rare case of spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in a naturally conceived singleton pregnancy. DESIGN: A case report. SETTING: The Obstetric and Gynecology Department at King Fahd Central Hospital, Jazan City, Saudi Arabia. PATIENT(S): Our reported case was a middle-aged Egyptian woman presented in the second trimester of her first pregnancy with persistent abdominal pains, shortness of breath, vomiting, and diarrhea. INTERVENTION(S): The data were collected by full history taking, clinical examination, transabdominal ultrasonographic examination, and by revision of results of the patient's laboratory tests. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): The possible event of spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in a naturally conceived singleton pregnancy. RESULT(S): Our case was reported as a severe case of spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in a naturally conceived singleton pregnancy. CONCLUSION(S): This case report emphasizes the importance of thorough evaluation of all women presented with acute abdomen and ovarian masses during pregnancy. Although the condition is extremely rare, it is a potentially lethal in its severe form if not timely diagnosed and managed conservatively. With the increasing awareness of these conditions, more and more cases could be detected and reported.
