Antimüllerian hormone is a marker of ovarian reserve and is now routinely measured in women seeking infertility treatment.


A 42-year-old woman, gravida 1, abortus 1, presented with secondary infertility. Obtained originally for assessment of ovarian reserve, an antimüllerian hormone of more than 160 ng/mL raised suspicion for a granulosa cell tumor. A laparoscopic right salpingo-oophorectomy, pelvic washings, dilation and curettage, and peritoneal and omental biopsies were performed. A well-differentiated granulosa cell tumor confined to the right ovary was consistent with stage 1A disease.


As the use of antimüllerian hormone becomes more common for ovarian reserve testing, providers need to maintain an awareness for neoplastic disease with abnormal values.
