This case of ovarian granulosa cell tumor is characterized by massive ascites and its early recurrence. It aimed for reviewing the diagnosis and management of granulosa cell tumor from the reported literature. A 13?year?old Asian female was presented with abdominal distension and massive ascites. Pathologic report was a juvenile granulosa cell tumor of the ovary, FIGO stage 1A. The patient treated with pelviscopic right salpingo?oophorectomy. After eighteen months follow up, recurrence was detected. Granulosa cell tumors have known diagnostic features on cytology and image studies. However those features were not helpful in this case.
