Abstract: Oligohydramnios is an ominous pregnant complication with high perinatal morbidity and mortality of 80%–90%, if it was observed in second trimester. However, there is no promising modality to cure it at that period. In this case, heparin therapy was successful in an early onset extreme oligohydramnios.
