Sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) is the commonest solid tumor in neonates, occurring in one in 40 000 births. Early removal of the tumor is advised in neonates as there is increased chance of malignant transformation with age. There are four types of the SCT. Type 3 is a relatively rare and usually present in older children. We are presenting here a case of type 3 SCT in a neonate with huge abdominal lump.
