Abstract:   (124 Views)
Background and Importance: Sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) with medular invasion is rare.
Case Presentation: We report a case of an 11-months male infant, with no prenatal history of any abnormality, presenting since birth, a mass in the buttock extended to retrorectum associated with a right side hypotonic limb and monoplegia. Medullar and abdominal pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a sacrococcygeal tissue mass and intradural lumbosacral invasion with a high level of alpha-fetoprotein. Surgical performed was done successfully with an uneventful follow-up.
Conclusion: Although the intradural invasion, those SCT are in major cases mature and present a low risk of malignancy or recurrence.
