Abstract

Objective: Granulosa type of sex-cord stromal tumor of the ovary is rare. They tend to recur late mostly in the pelvis, but intra-abdominal and hepatic metastases are also seen. We would like to present a case, operated for granulosa tumor 10 years ago, who had a recurrence in bartholin gland along with intraabdominal metastases. As far as we know, this is the first case in literature of a granulosa tumor recurring in a bartholin gland.
