Abstract

Objective: Ovarian granulosa cell tumors are rare malignancies with a relatively favorable prognosis. However, patients still suffer from disease-related mortality. Therefore, the prognostic factors should be clarified. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical and pathologic characteristics related with disease recurrence and mortality in adult type ovarian granulosa cell tumors.
