Abstract

Large virilizing tumors of granulosa cells in the ovary represent a rare manifestation, often characterized by elevated testosterone levels and associated signs of virilization. This study focused on the management and outcomes of 30 patients diagnosed with a large virilizing tumor of granulosa cells in the left ovary. The patients underwent surgical intervention, including programmed laparotomy with frozen biopsy, followed by total abdominal hysterectomy with double adnexectomy plus omentectomy. Despite the prolonged duration of symptoms, the surgical procedures were successful, and the patient's recovery has been satisfactory. This study provides insights into the challenges associated with the management of ovarian steroid-producing tumors and underscores the importance of timely intervention and comprehensive postoperative care.
