Nasopharyngeal Teratoma


Congenital teratomas are most common in the saccro-coccygeal region; less than one-third of all teratomas arise in the head and neck region. The nasopharynx is an exceptionally rare location [84, 167, 187]. Teratomas are ill-formed, lobular solid and cystic tumour masses typically diagnosed in the neonatal period with airway obstruction. Mature teratomas are completely benign and consist of mature tissues of ecto-, meso- and endodermal derivation in a more or less organised fashion. Optimal treatment is complete excision. Immature teratomas contain tissues of varying degrees of differentiation and maturation. Immature teratomas in infants have an excellent prognosis, quite in contrast to adult patients with immature teratomas.
