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.

Clinically, it is characterized by acute or subacute onset of multifocal neurological deficits that usually have a monophasic

The clinical course of adult Still's disease (AOSD) can be divided into three main patterns: monophasic

We evaluated potential epidemiologic risks associated with human and environmental Salmonella Napoli isolates and the 5 most frequent nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS) serovars other than Napoli (monophasic
variant of Typhimurium, Typhimurium, Derby, Enteritidis, and Infantis) by using simple 2-way frequency tables.
Before injection in flaccid state, duplex waveform is monophasic
with minimal or no diastolic component.
It has multiple subtypes, out of which monophasic
(spindle cell carcinoma) has close histological resemblance to other tumors including fibrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, and spindle cell variant of squamous cell carcinoma that are relatively more common.
