OBJECTIVE The prognosis of ovarian granulosa cell tumors is difficult to predict by conventional histological methods. STUDY DESIGN The tumors of 30 patients operated on for a granulosa cell tumor were retrospectively studied for the expression of the inhibin alpha-subunit. The immunohistochemical staining results were correlated to the FIGO stage of the tumor and the prognosis of the patients. RESULTS Twenty-six (87%) of the ovarian granulosa cell tumors stained positively for the inhibin… CONTINUE READING
