dc.description.abstractType IV sacrococcygeal teratoma with intraspinal involvement is rare and to our knowledge has not been reported previously in the literature. The authors present the case of a 2-month-old infant with a type IV sacrococcygeal teratoma diagnosed on prenatal ultrasound. Postnatal MRI revealed intraspinal extension through an enlarged sacral neuroforamina on the right side. On surgical exploration, the authors discovered a dorsal cystic tumor involving the sacral spine that extended through an enlarged S4 foramen to a large presacral component. The tumor was successfully removed to achieve a complete en bloc surgical resection. The authors review the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and treatment of sacrococcygeal teratomas with intraspinal extension. Copyright 2018, The Author(s).en_US
