Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 23-year old second gravida presented with 8 1/2 months of amenorrhoea. The fundal height corresponded with 36 weeks of pregnancy with a single live foetus. Ultrasonography revealed a live foetus and a cystic mass over lower sacral region. Emergency caesarean section was performed and the baby was delivered with intact sacrococcygeal teratoma. The histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of sacrococcygeal teratoma with mature neural elements. The baby had died on day 10 and the postpartum period of the mother was uneventful.
