Abstract

Granulosa cell tumors are sex-cord stromal tumors, and since their incidence is very low, it is difficult to design treatment and evaluate its efficacy. In these cases it is very difficult and challenging to give any advice regarding future pregnancies. In the present case, since treatment of granulosa cell tumor was affected by decision to have another pregnancy, one is inevitably concerned whether the pregnancy and hormonal status regarding pregnancy could change prognostic factors regarding the tumor itself. After the pregnancy the patient declined hysterectomy and her reasons were mainly that she felt safe because the second look during cesarean section showed no evidence of the disease. There are no sufficient data in the literature regarding planned pregnancies during the course of follow up for granulosa cell tumors.
