Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Three cases of sacrococcygeal teratoma of the neonate occurred during a two-year period in which approximately 6,000 live births occurred in our hospital. Two infants were delivered vaginally and one by cesarean section. One infant underwent immediate surgery and survived, whereas the other two were in too poor condition to warrant surgery. Early excision is the treatment of choice; radiotherapy and chemotherapy are not effective in the malignant variety of sacrococcygeal lesion.
