Management and Reconstruction of a Massive Neonatal Neck Teratoma
The Journal of craniofacial surgery
Cervical teratoma is a rare tumor comprised of multiple tissue types. These masses can result in significant functional and aesthetic complications, and surgical intervention is the mainstay of treatment. The authors report the treatment and 8-year follow-up of a patient born with a massive cervicofacial teratoma. The mass was diagnosed in utero and required perinatal airway management. The patient underwent several procedures to enhance his appearance and function early on in life with an excellent outcome at intermediate follow-up.
