MALCOLM SUAREZ., Adolfo Luis; DIAZ JUAN., Gricel Liliana  y  LEYVA FONSECA., Dayana. Giant virilizing tumor of left ovarian granulose cells. Clinical case. Multimed [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.5, pp.1210-1220.  Epub 17-Sep-2020. ISSN 1028-4818.

Peripheral steroid-producing tumors are rare entities and are potentially malignant. Testosterone is the most commonly elevated hormone and is mostly associated with signs of virilization. A case of a 62-year-old patient with a giant virilizing ovarian granulose cell tumor was diagnosed. Scheduled laparotomy was performed with freezing biopsy and total abdominal hysterectomy with double anixectomy plus omentectomy. I evolve favorably without complications. The case reported here is that of a patient with a history of apparent health, regular menstruations, with an obstetric history of 4 gestations and having been operated on at 24 years of a fetal heart rate, before a table of virilization syndrome were used data from hospital medical history, complementary examinations, interview and physical examination of the patient. Despite the time of evolution presented by the patient with the giant virilizing tumor of cells of the left ovary granulose, the operation was a success and the evolution has been satisfactory, thanks to the work of the medical staff who were in charge of the case, demonstrating once again the strengths of the Cuban health system in situations like these.
