Granulosa cell tumors are relatively low-grade malignancies accounting for about 1 to 2% of all primary ovarian neoplasms and have an indolent growth pattern. There are two types of tumors, adult type granulosa cell tumor (AGCT) and juvenile type granulosa cell tumor (JGCT), and each tumor reveals different clinical or histopathological features. The clinical manifestations are mostly associated with estrogen produced by tumor, which are vaginal bleeding or menstrual irregularity in AGCT and precocious puberty in JGCT. Although most patients are diagnosed in early stage with favorable prognosis, some recur after several years. So, continuous follow up is required. Recently, we experienced two cases of adult type granulosa cell tumor and report with a brief review of literatures.
