An autopsy case of a congenital sacrococcygeal teratoma in a dead born fetus of eight months gestation is reported. The fetus weighs 1.3 kg. and reveals a large protruding tumor mass in sacral region, measuring 14×10×10 cm. and weighing 400 gm. The tumor is completely covered with skin. The tumor masses are partly cystic and partly solid with variegated appearance on cut sections. Anteriorly the tumor is partly extending into spinal canal. Microscopically the tumor is composed of various elements derived from trigerm layers. Most prominent elements are central nervous tissue with considerable amount of choroidal plexus. No evidence of malignancy is noted. There are found no congenital anomalies except for the teratoma. Brief review of literature is made.
