Ovarian granulosa cell tumours (GCT) occur rarely and represent 2-3% of all ovarian tumours.

We present our experience with three patients who underwent secondary cytoreductive surgery including liver resection for recurrence of the disease resulting in greatly improved quality of life and disease-free interval.
