In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the most comprehensively registered interventions in clinical medicine. IVF is regarded as safe with very few complications. We report a woman who developed acute renal failure due to compression of both ureters from enlarged stimulated ovaries. The condition was diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging. It was treated with insertion of double-J stents in both ureters and dialysis. Compression of the ureters due to enlarged ovaries should be considered if a patient especially with pre-existing endometriosis develops acute renal failure following IVF.
