This is the first case report of a patient with a large serous cystadenoma accompanied by a juvenile granulosa cell tumor that was discovered in the remaining ovarian tissue. A 25-year-old female was presented with constipation and amenorrhea. Ultrasonography revealed a large cystic mass in the left ovary with a normal uterus. The remaining ovarian tissue seemed normal at first look after cystectomy, but showed abnormal consistency on palpation. The remaining ovarian tissue was removed and granulosa cell tumor was confirmed by pathologic examination. The patient has been followed up for 30 months without evidence of recurrence. We would like to emphasize the importance of inspection, and palpation of remaining ovarian tissue during operation to avoid risks of remaining ovarian pathology.
Key Words: Ovarian neoplasm, Serous cystadenoma, Juvenile granulosa cell tumor
