Thromboembolic disease associated with superovulation is extremely rare, but severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is considered as one of the most important risk factors. We recently experienced a case of deep vein thrombosis occurring at left internal jugular, subclavian, and innominate vein combined with severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. She experienced a miscarriage, and the thrombi were resolved completely after anticoagulant therapy. Although thromboembolic phenomenon is hard to predict, and occurs in spite of appropriate management of severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, the measurement of factors associated with thrombophilia and prophylactic use of low dose heparin are recommended.
