Abstract

Prenatally diagnosed sacrococcygeal teratomas (SCT) have higher mortality rates than those diagnosed in the neonatal period. Natural history of SCT varies, and management depends on pathophysiology. Treatment may be minimally invasive or require open surgery. Intervention may take place in the prenatal period, or it may occur within minutes to days after birth. Optimal care requires close follow up and communication between members of a multidisciplinary team. We present a case of prenatally diagnosed SCT and address the evaluation, anesthetic considerations, and mechanisms needed to care for this high risk population.
