Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a well-known iatrogenic condition, debatably regarded as rarely occurring, but a serious complication observed during in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment. Its manifestations alongside other disease conditions have being mentioned in many case reports, but not with schistosomiasis. We herein present the case of a 33 year old, P 1 + 0 woman with features of moderate OHSS during IVF treatment and subsequently diagnosed with schistosomiasis. Both conditions were treated and resumed to the fertility clinic two months later where frozen embryo replacement was planned for her, using a natural cycle and two embryos were put back. She became pregnant and made good progress with her antenatal. Extensive review of literature showed that schistosomiasis was not reported in association with OHSS; our case report presents an instructive guide to clinicians to always look beyond surgical complications such as bladder and ureteric injuries in IVF patients.
