Congenital teratoma is a rare malformation, and few papers have been published about it. We present a case of large teratoma arising from the hard palate in a neonate. The obstructive mass caused maternal polyhydramnios. The child was in respiratory distress as a result of airway obstruction, and endotracheal intubation was done immediately after birth. The palatal mass was removed successfully on 1st day of life. The typical components of a teratoma were identified including mature neural glial tissue.
