Case report: Ovarian abscess following puncture of an endometrioma during ultrasound-guided oocyte retrieval

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 34-year-old white female patient with 11 years of primary infertility due to endometriosis underwent ultrasound-guided oocyte retrieval for in-vitro fertilization. A right ovarian endometrioma was aspirated during oocyte retrieval. Two weeks after follicular aspiration, the patient developed acute abdominal pain and operative laparoscopy revealed a ruptured right ovarian abscess. She responded to laparoscopic drainage and intravenous antibiotics. The patient conceived during that cycle and has a single ongoing pregnancy.
