Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumors (JGCT) are the one of the malignant ovarian tumors of sex cord-stromal origin. Only 5% of granulosa cell tumors are JGCT. There are only a few reported cases of JGCT during pregnancy. JGCT has a good prognosis although it has rarely high mitotic activity and nuclear atipy.
Here we reported a case JGCT case with JGCT diagnosed during pregnancy. She was 20-year-old and had a mass in the right adnexial region 17 cm in size. She was performed unilateral salphingoopherectomy. We discussed the prognosis and follow-up of this rare phenomenon in the contrast of the literature.
