Severe ovarian hyperstimulation is a rare complication of ovulation induction therapy. In this report, we are presenting a case of 33-year female, who required intensive care unit admission due to respiratory failure secondary to massive pleural effusion and ascites. With the positive history of in vitro fertilization, the patient was diagnosed to have severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Besides the medical treatment, abdominal paracentesis for the drainage of massive ascites and tube thoracostomy were performed, resulting in gradual improvement.
