We present the case of a 35-year-old woman with a severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) as a complication of ovulation induction for primary infertility. The clinical picture showed massively enlarged ovaries, pleural effusion and haemoconcentration. She needed a thoracentesis for evacuation of the large pleural effusion. High levels of renin and prorenin were observed in plasma and pleural exudate.
