Mustafa HJ. Subserosal fibroid thought to be recurrent granulosa cell tumor in a pregnant patient. Int J Case Rep Images 2016;7(3):165–169.
Juvenile androgen secreting granulosa cell tumors are very rare. We are describing a patient whom thought to have recurrence in pregnancy but turned to be subserosal pedunculated fibroid.
We are presenting a case of a 30-year-old female with history of androgen secreting juvenile granulosa cell tumor of the ovary who underwent exploratory laparotomy for suspected recurrent granulosa cell tumor while she was 16 weeks pregnant. The mass turned out to be subserosal pedunculated fibroid.
Recurrent juvenile androgen secreting granulosa cell tumor is a rare case. It can be confused with pedunculated fibroids even on MRI scan. Proceeding with laparoscopy first before exploratory laparotomy should be considered.
