The differential diagnosis for precocious puberty in a young female includes peripheral causes. This case report documents a rare cause of isosexual precocious puberty, a juvenile granulosa cell tumour of the ovary–and a brief literature review. A one year-old baby girl presented with mass abdomen, vaginal discharge and rapid onset of pubertal development. She underwent an exploratory laparotomy for tumour resection. Pathology reported a juvenile granulosa cell tumour of the ovary. Early stage granulosa cell tumor surgically treated has good prognosis. Adjuvant chemotherapy is not indicated in this setting.
