OHSS is best defined as an iatrogenic condition caused by inflammatory mediators released by the hyperstimulated ovaries. OHSS is associated with significant physical and psychosocial morbidity and has been associated with maternal death. However, in most cases OHSS is self-limiting and requires supportive management and monitoring while awaiting resolution. Because OHSS is the most serious consequence of controlled ovarian stimulation, every attempt should be made to identify patients who are at highest risk. If the “at risk” women can be identified prior to or during treatment, targeted preventive measures can be applied.
