Title : Congenial cervical teratoma in neonates: Two cases report and review of literature

Abstract:

Congenial cervical teratomas are rare tumors in neonates. These tumors are germ cell tumors commonly composed of multiple cell types derived from one or more of the three germ layers. They carry a potentially lethal prognosis because of the immediate effects of airway obstruction and their possible future malignancy. Teratomas are amenable to curable resection but the site of their origin, cystic nature and their rarity make the treatment is challenging. Herein; we present two neonates born with huge cystic neck swelling compressing airway. After stabilization; they are successfully excised and proved to be immature cystic teratoma originating from the thyroid gland. There was no recurrence during the follow up period. Take Away Notes: • Cervical teratomas, though rare, carry a potentially lethal prognosis not only because of their possible future malignancy but also because of the immediate effects of airway obstruction • Prenatal diagnosis and planned postnatal management can significantly alter the outcome of such a lesion
