GONZALEZ GONZALEZ, Jose Luis; MENENDEZ NUNEZ, Joaquín  and  ABELA LAZO, Alba. Extragonadal granulosa cell tumor. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2013, vol.52, n.2, pp.139-145. ISSN 0034-7493.

Extragonadal granulosa cell tumors are extremely infrequent. Originated along the path of the gonads in their formation during embryologic evolution, they are mainly present in the perimenopausal woman. Generally, they are tumors with a low degree of malignancy and frequent recurrence. A 51 year - old patient was studied who, for more than 10 years, presented few symptoms and a slow growth, reaching 20 cm in the retroperitoneum. The surgical procedure performed was satisfactory.

Keywords : tumor; retroperitoneum; extragonadal; granulosa cells.
