Teratoma may comprise either well-differentiated or primitive tissue. The tumor is diagnosed as an immature teratoma if there are areas of immature tissue in the stromal, epithelial, or neural component. The ectodermal components typically include squamous epithelium and neural tissue. We are presenting here a case of sacrococcygeal teratoma with pigmented epithelium on histopathology in a newborn female child.
