OVARIAN HYPERSTIMULATION SYNDROME

Syndrome composed of a combination of ovarian enlargement and an acute fluid shift out of the intravascular space. The enlargement is caused by ovarian cyst formation and the fluid shift may result in ascites, hydrothorax, or generalised oedema. The syndrome is most generally seen as a complication of ovulation induction, a treatment for infertility.
