Abstract
Ovarian granulosa cell tumor is a uncommon low-grade feminizing malignancy. Its natural history shows slow growth without pain. It often reveals to be very large sized mass when diagnosed, and is confined to the involved ovary in many cases. Complete surgical removal is primary treatment and recurrences thereafter are relatively common. Postoperative adjuvant therapy including reoperation, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination therapy has been used with various degrees of success. We experienced a case of huge ovarian granulosa cell tumor occupying whole abdominal cavity by rapid growth, which is presented with a brief review of corresponding literatures.
Key Words: Granulosa cell tumor
