Rare Tumor Case Review


We excised an intrapericardial teratoma tumor out of a child approximately one month ago.

This is a very uncommon tumor overall, and even more uncommon in children. The majority of
reports in the literature are single case reports

I would like to report ours, as well as do a literature review to combine all of the cases
and see if some conclusions can be made about this rare tumor in children.
