Although teratoma sometimes is defined as including tissues of 2 or 3 of the germ cell layers, neoplasms comprised of widely divergent tissues of one cell layer (as in this case with epidermal and neural tissue) conventionally qualify as teratomas but are more accurately termed 'monophasic teratomas.' Other terms for certain monophasic ectodermal teratomas, such as dermoid cyst or neuroectodermal tumor, do not fully reflect the combined epidermal and neuroectodermal nature of this case.
