Granulosa cell tumors of the ovary are rare ovarian malignancy developed on stromal ovarian cells and
characterized by estrogen secretion. Histologically, there are divided on two types: adult granulosa tumors, which
are more frequent and occurring in perimenopausal and post-menopausal women and juvenile granulosa tumors,
which are rarer and occurring in teenager and adolescent girls.
The association between GCT and pregnancy is a rare condition with therapeutic challenge consisting on the pregnancy and the fertility outcome in a hand and the oncological results in the other. We present a case report of an adult granulosa cell tumor discovered fortuitously during caesarian section. We report the management of this tumor and the way to preserve the fertility.
