There are only a few reported cases of JGCT during pregnancy. JGCT has a good prognosis although it has rarely high mitotic activity and nuclear atipy.

She was performed unilateral salphingoopherectomy. We discussed the prognosis and follow-up of this rare phenomenon in the contrast of the literature.
