Ovarian mutilating surgery is not an option in the management of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), except in cases with evident tissue necrosis after torsion. When severe OHSS occurs, preservation of fertility must be the target. Therefore, conservative management should be the only feasible approach, as recommended in literature worldwide. Individualization of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, and an early active management when OHSS initiates, are the most effective measures for reducing the incidence and severity of this disease.
