Sacrococcygeal teratomas (SCT) are neoplasms, composed of a wide diversity of tissues foreign to the anatomic site in which they arise. We report a case of a multigravida at 38 weeks with a Type 1 SCT. The diagnosis was , made prenatally and the patient underwent a cesarean section due to prelabor rupture of membranes. Surgical resection of the tumor was performed on the 5th postnatal day and histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of a benign SCT. The baby is being followed up regularly and at six months of age has no evidence of recurrence of the disease. Management of fetal SCT requires a a multidisciplinary team approach to maximize infant survival.
