Empty follicle or bot? A case report

Boş folikül sendromu; bir IVF siklusunda çok sayıda folikül ge lişimi sağlanmasına karşın hiç oosit elde edilememesi ile ka rakterize edilir. Biz; insan koryonik gonadotropin verilmesinden 36 saat sonra boş folikül sendromu olarak varsayılan ve 42. saatte, ikinci doz ilaca gerek kalmadan ikinci oosit toplama iş lemi ile kurtarılan bir vakayı sunmaktayız. Bu vakada; iyi kali tede üç embriyonun intrauterin transferi sağlıklı bir kız çocuğu ile sonuçlanmıştır.

Boş folikül ya da değil? bir olgu sunumu

Empty follicle syndrome is characterized by retrieving no oocytes in despite of achieving multiple follicle development in an IVF cycle. We report a case having a presumed empty follicle syndrome at 36th hour of human chorionic gonadotrophin (βhcg) administration and rescued by a second oocyte pick-up procedure performed at 42nd hour, without the need of a second dose of the drug. Intrauterine transfer of three good quality embryos resulted in a singleton pregnancy which ended with a healthy girl.
