Aim: to evaluate the recurrence rate and the overall survival in women with adult granulosa cell tumor (AGCT), who were treated at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Aalborg University Hospital during the period January 1985 to January 2010. Materials and Methods: Data from 38 women with AGCT were collected retrospectively. The histological slides were re-evaluated by a gynecologic pathologist. Surgical and pathological characteristics were analyzed. Results: Thirty-seven women with AGCT were diagnosed. 92% were diagnosed in FIGO Stage I and 8% in Stage II. The majority of patients (27 patients, 73%) were treated with total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Only one patient received postoperative pelvic irradiation. The recurrence rate was 5.6%. Conclusion: The recurrent rate was 5.6%, which is low according to the literature. Primary surgical treatment with radical removal of tumor seemed to be appropriate treatment.
