Introduction: Teratomas are derived from embryonic tissues that are typically found in the gonadal and sacrococcygeal regions of adults and children. Primary teratomas in the retroperitoneum are very rare in infant and primary adrenal teratomas are extremely rare. Early diagnosis and surgical resection are important for effective treatment. Case report: We report here the case of a histologically unusual adrenal teratomas detected on computed tomography during the workup of abdominal distension 3-mounth-old male infant. The evaluation and treatment of this condition and a review of the literature are included in this paper.

    Sacrococcygeal teratoma is the most common tumor in infants. About 80% of these tumors are types 1 and 2, and are unlikely to cause metastases whose incidence is 10% in the neonatal period, against nearly 100% at the age of 3 years. These tumors can acquire huge and contain large proportions...

    Primary extraneural ependymomas are rare tumors that arise in ectopic sites, including pulmonary, sacrococcygeal region, ovarian, and paraovarian tissues. Four such ependymomas reported in the literature involve the paraovarian tissues, including 2 broad ligament ependymomas. Here we describe a...
