Intrapericardial teratomas are rare but potentially fatal. With prenatal ultrasound, early diagnosis and decision for treatment can be accomplished. However, the decision becomes to treat prenatally vs. waiting until the neonatal period for definitive surgical management. The most common sequelae of intrapericardial teratomas are pericardial effusion and often progression to ...
