Juvenile granulosa cell tumour is an exceptionally discerned neoplasm engendered from specialized gonadal stromal cells or primitive granulosa cells wherein testicular lesion is preponderantly unilateral and encountered within 6 months of neonatal period. Testicular juvenile granulosa cell tumour is associated with anomalous karyotype or genetic mosaics such as chromosome 45, X/47, XXY, 45X/46 or X.r(Y). Neoplasm is concordant with testicular cryptorchidism or dysgenetic gonads as a component of Drash syndrome. Tumefaction demonstrates solid, nodular or follicular configurations or an admixture of aforesaid patterns. Neoplastic cells are pervaded with moderate to abundant, pale to eosinophilic cytoplasm and spherical to ovoid, hyperchromatic nuclei with significant mitotic activity. Extensive stromal hyalinization is associated with myxoid substance within intervening stroma. Tumour cells are immune reactive to FOXL2, steroidogenic factor 1 (SF1), vimentin, inhibin, calretinin, Wilm’s tumour 1 (WT1) antigen and SOX9. Testicular juvenile granulosa cell tumour requires segregation from neoplasms such as yolk sac tumour, teratoma, cystic dysplasia of the testicle, Sertoli cell tumour, gonadoblastoma, unclassified sex cord stromal tumours or testicular rhabdomyosarcoma. Surgical manoeuvers as orchiectomy or intervention techniques as testis sparing surgical modalities appropriately alleviate the neoplasm.
