C. Holbrook, T. Tsang, J. Clibbon, A. B. Mathur

 

ABSTRACT

Sacrococcygeal teratoma diagnosed in utero is associated with a high risk of mortality and morbidity. Preterm birth is commonly associated with the condition. The management and outcomes of such infants are well described. However, in all cases, the birthweight has been greater than 1kg. We describe the successful management and outcome of an infant born at 26 + 2 weeks with very low birthweight (950g).

Keywords: sacrococcygeal teratoma, prematurity, low birthweight
