Ovarian granulosa cell tumor (GCT) is a rare ovarian neoplasm, which typically occurs in children and young women. More than 90% of the patients are diagnosed in Stage IA, who can be cured by unilateral oophorectomy. Meanwhile, the remaining is diagnosed in more advanced stages, wherein tumors may exhibit aggressive behavior. In this stage, surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy may be required. Isosexual precocious puberty in girls is mostly idiopathic in origin. However, this is a diagnosis of exclusion, and many differential diagnoses have to be thought of in evaluation of precocity in girls. We are presenting here a case of isosexual precocity in a 7-year-old girl due to juvenile GCT of ovary, a rare etiology of precocity.
