A tentative diagnosis of sacrococcygeal teratoma
Urologic co-morbidities associated with sacrococcygeal teratoma
and a rational plan for urologic surveillance," Pediatric Blood and Cancer, vol.
Our report describes a large, mature pelvic-subtype sacrococcygeal teratoma
which was found incidentally in an asymptomatic 12-year-old girl.
The exact embryologesis of sacrococcygeal teratoma
(SCT) is not clear.
It is well recognized that incomplete surgical resection of neonatal teratomas is associated with recurrences of a pure yolk sac tumor, as seen in cases of sacrococcygeal teratoma
for which coccygectomy was not performed.
Sonographic prognostic factors in fetuses with sacrococcygeal teratoma
No gross sacrococcygeal teratoma
or any other tumour was detected.
(SCT) is one of the most common malignancies found in the neonatal age group.
The differential diagnosis for sacrococcygeal mass is sacrococcygeal teratoma
, terminal myelocystocele, meningomyelocele, meningocele, lipoma, hamartoma, lymphangioma, hemangioma, chordoma and ependydoma (4).
3) Radiographic differential diagnoses of presacral masses in children include sacrococcygeal teratoma
, anterior meningocele, neuroenteric cyst, and lymphoma.
Other conditions may be corrected by fetal surgery and require study: left congenital diaphragmatic hernia, congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation, sacrococcygeal teratoma
, and urinary tract obstruction.
