Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is an often complication of ovarian induction after ART methods, sometimes in cases of multiple pregnancies and trofoblastic dissease. Spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is unussual in normal single pregnancies. The publications, where recurrent spontaneous OHSS is described, are extremely rare. The analysis of these publications was done and we report next rare case of spontaneous recurrent OHSS.

Key words:
