Abstract

Teratomas are congenital tumours arising from pluripotent cells and usually consisting of tissue arising from all 3 embryonic germ layers. Teratomas are quite uncommon in head and neck sites and to date only 150 such cases have been reported. A rate case of teratoma of the mastoid region in a newborn is reported. The methods of diagnosis and treatment are discussed and the literature is reviewed.
