Gastric teratoma is a very rare tumour during infancy and childhood, usually benign and predominantly affects males. We present two infants, one male and a female, 7 and 6 months of age respectively, who presented with distension of the upper abdomen with palpable mass. The 2nd child had feeding problem for 2 days. Imaging studies showed both the tumours arising from the posterior walls of the stomach. In both the patients, the tumours could be completely excised. The histology had shown features of mature teratoma. Both the children are on regular follow up for 12 months and 36 months, respectively and are doing well.
