Abstract

A case of neonatal teratoma of the nasopharynx associated with polyhydramnios and respiratory distress is presented. Surgical excision was carried out after preoperative evaluation with high resolution CT. Computed tomography is valuable in distinguishing a teratomatous tumor and in searching for intracranial extension and malignant characteristics.
