Abstract
Introduction: Granulosa cell tumor of the ovary is a very rare cancer, accounting for only 0.6–3% of all ovarian tumors. Histologically, it belongs to the category of sex-cord stromal tumors, comprising 70% of tumors of this group. Commonly, the tumors secrete oestrogen, so the patients usually presented with precocious puberty, menorrhagia, metrorrhagia or post-menopausal bleed.
Case Report: We report a case of adult granulosa cell tumor of right ovary with atypical presentation. The patient presented to us with secondary amenorrhea. Ultrasound scan showed mixed solid cystic right adnexal mass measuring 6.7x9.5x8.7 cm. The preoperative hormonal profiles showed suppressed follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) 0.2 IU/L, normal luteinizing hormone 8.1 IU/L, elevated estradiol 650.1 pmol/L and testosterone 2.5 nmol/L but no sign of virilization. Laparotomy salpingo-oophorectomy and omentectomy was electively performed and she regains her menses and her hormonal profiles were normalized one month later. The histopathology reported as adult granulosa cell tumor stage 1A. She is still under our outpatient follow-up.
Conclusion: Sudden onset of secondary amenorrhea with ovarian tumor should raise high suspicion of hormonal secreting tumor.

Keywords: Granulosa cell tumor, Secondary amenorrhea, Sex-cord stromal tumor
