Nasopharyngeal teratoma is a rare teratoma arising anywhere from the oronasal cavity, regarded as an expanding, cavity-filling lesion, with a high mortality rate due to severe airway obstruction, especially in the neonatal period. We report a patient with a single, firm, hairy swelling arising from vomer, protruding into the oral cavity associated with cleft palate and an inguinal hernia. Excision of the lesion and reconstruction of the cleft palate was successfully performed in a single stage. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a child with a nasopharyngeal teratoma, cleft palate and an inguinal hernia.
