Juvenile granulosa cell tumor (JGCT) is an extremely rare ovarian tumor that has been associated with Maffucci syndrome. It both secretes hormone and has been postulated to grow in response to hormone. We present a case of a 33-year-old G1P0 asymptomatic woman with a history of Maffucci syndrome found to have a left adnexal mass on routine ultrasonography at 13 weeks gestation. This case demonstrates the sonographic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of JGCT, as well as the natural progression of the tumor during pregnancy. A follow-up ultrasound 3 weeks after initial diagnosis demonstrated marked growth in size and vascularity of the tumor, prompting unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Histopathological findings confirmed the diagnosis of JGCT.

Juvenile granulosa cell tumors (JGCT) of the ovary are rare sex cord-stromal ovarian tumors that are typically diagnosed during the first two decades of life. Most patients present with precocious pub...
Epidemiological studies have found that women have detectable levels of organic pollutants such as hexachlorobenzene (HCB), 2,2-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (p,p'-DDE), polychlorinated biphenyl 15...
In mammalian ovaries, many studies demonstrated that the proliferation and apoptosis of granulosa cells are involved in folliculogenesis. Previous evidence suggests that miR-126-3p might get involved ...

This study aims to discover the connection between BMI and oocyte and granulosa consistencies.
The purpose of this research is to conduct an open, pilot trial to assess the efficacy and safety of fluoxetine in the treatment of Juvenile Primary Fibromyalgia Syndrome (JPFS).
A neoplasm composed entirely of GRANULOSA CELLS, occurring mostly in the OVARY. In the adult form, it may contain some THECA CELLS. This tumor often produces ESTRADIOL and INHIBIN. The excess estrogen exposure can lead to other malignancies in women and PRECOCIOUS PUBERTY in girls. In rare cases, granulosa cell tumors have been identified in the TESTES.
Neoplasms derived from the primitive sex cord or gonadal stromal cells of the embryonic GONADS. They are classified by their presumed histogenesis and differentiation. From the sex cord, there are SERTOLI CELL TUMOR and GRANULOSA CELL TUMOR; from the gonadal stroma, LEYDIG CELL TUMOR and THECOMA. These tumors may be identified in either the OVARY or the TESTIS.
Gonadal neoplasm composed entirely of SERTOLI CELLS or may have a component of GRANULOSA CELLS. Some of the Sertoli cell tumors produce ESTROGEN or ANDROGENS, but seldom in sufficient quantity to cause clinical symptoms such as FEMINIZATION or masculinization (VIRILISM).
A rare syndrome characterized by UROGENITAL ABNORMALITIES; GONADAL DYSGENESIS; PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM; and WILMS TUMOR. It is caused by a mutation in the Wilms tumor suppressor gene (GENES, WILMS TUMOR) on chromosome 11.
Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
