The unique case of a young woman with a history of ulcerative colitis and multiple laparotomies is described. She was admitted after oocyte recovery with bilateral lower limb deep vein thrombosis and acute renal insufficiency without convincing evidence of severe ovarian hyperstimulation. This case presented significant diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. It is not possible to quantify the risk of serious complications after in vitro fertilization (IVF) for women with a known medical history. However, it is expected to be above average for at least some of them. Furthermore, management of the arising complications can be problematic in this group. It is recommended that specific measures be taken when these individuals undergo IVF in order to minimize the risk of adverse events.
