Abstract

The sacrococcygeal region is the seat of frequent developmental anomalies and a favoured site for germ cell tumours in the paediatric age group.We report an unusual case of heterotopic brain tissue mimicking a teratoma in a neonate. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first such report.
