Sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) is a neoplasm that arises in the sacrococcygeal region and is derived from multiple primitive germ layers. It is the most common congenital neonatal tumor but rarely seen in adults. The standard care for sacrococcygeal teratomas is complete surgical resection of the tumor. The presence of malignant transformation is associated with a less favorable outcome.
