Abstract

INTRODUCTION
Operative hysteroscopic intravascular absorption syndrome (OHIAS) is an uncommon condition arising from excessive fluid overboard from distending medium intravasation during hysteroscopy. This causes acute hyponatremia, pulmonary edema and other metabolic disturbances. This case aims to report the uncommon presentation of hyperglycemia in a non-diabetic patient after hysteroscopy using 5% dextrose water (D5W) as distending fluid.


CASE
Clinical examination and laboratories were employed to arrive at a diagnosis and therapeutic plan.


CONCLUSION
The patient’s hyperglycemia was a response to the use of D5W as distending medium, with consequent volume expansion and dilutional hyponatremia. Vigilance is imperative not only in monitoring fluid overload and serum electrolytes, but also to the glycemic status of the patient.
