Abstract

Pediatric granulosa cell tumors of the ovary are rare functional neoplasms causing secondary precocious puberty. The tumor possesses significant diagnostic challenge when occurs in a patient approaching puberty due to masking of symptoms. We report a case of ovarian tumor in a 9-year-old girl which was diagnosed on histopathology and the pseudo-puberty signs reverted post resection.
