Abstract

Two cases of women who developed internal jugular vein (IJV) thrombosis associated with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) are reported in this article. There are 27 cases of IJV thrombosis associated with in vitro fertilisation (IVF) reported in the literature, and in 78% of cases, this outcome was following OHSS. The hypercoagulable state of OHSS increases the risk of venous thromboembolism, and the IJV appears to have a preponderance in uncommon-site thrombosis.
