Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) may occur in the luteal phase or in setting of early pregnancy. In severe late-onset OHSS, albumin supplementation may be required to maintain intravascular oncotic pressure, but cases with albumin allergy still lack approved treatment. With this in mind, we discussed here the role of fresh frozen plasma as an albumin substitute in a patient with late-onset OHSS who developed severe albumin allergy. We also evaluated the efficacy and safety of pigtail catheter drainage for the management of ascites complicating severe OHSS.
