Reporting here, a case of 2-month-old female baby hospitalized for surgical excision of sacrococcygeal teratoma. She was born with a mass at the lower back at birth and was diagnosed as a case of Sacrocoggeal teratoma. Postoperatively, the child had no complication and was discharged after 9 days stay in the hospital.

Keywords: Sacrococcygeal teratoma, Germ cell tumours.
