A Case of Sacrococcygeal Teratoma
Published Online: Jul 24, 2015
Teratoma are probably the result of a segregated blastomere which, being totipotent, results in a jumble of tissues. It has also been suggested that they may be displacements of the coccygeal body. However, regardless of their origin they are usually present at birth or shortly there-after and are excised via perineal route. The following case of a sacrococcygeal teratoma is reported because of the histogenesis involved and the excellent result following surgical removal.
