GRANULOSA‐THECA CELL TUMOR IN A ONE‐YEAR‐OLD INFANT

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Abstract. A case is presented of a 12‐month‐old female infant, with sexual precocity due to a Granulosa‐Theca cell tumor which presented with vaginal bleeding, breast development and pubic hair growth. The 17β‐estradiol levels prior to operation were 300 pg/ml. Levels of gonadotropins were undetectable. Postoperative estradiol levels were measured and found to be 10 pg/ml. This tumor is very rare in infants, and there have been only four previously reported cases in children under 2 years of age. 1985 Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand
