Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Infants born with a giant sacrococcygeal teratoma (GSCT; >10 cm) have high mortality. Risk factors for mortality include increased tumor vascularity, high cardiac output, rapid growth, diagnosis before 20-week gestation, delivery before 30-week gestation, hydrops, low birth weight, Apgar less than 7 at 5 min and polyhydramnios. We present the case of a 28-week infant born with a GSCT (15 × 12 × 16 cm) and all of these risk factors.
