Abstract

Cytogenetic analysis of a case of metastatic granulosa cell tumor recurring 21 years after oophorectomy revealed monosomy 22. This anomaly, typical of granulosa cell tumor, coupled with the pathologic and immunophenotypic findings assisted in establishing the proper diagnosis of this lesion in the absence of the original histopathologic slides.
