Abstract

Intrapericardial teratoma is a rare mediastinal tumor that originates from aberrant clusters of multipotential cells from three germinal layers. Previous reports have used the combination of cardiac angiography, CT scan, and echocardiogram to establish the diagnosis prior to surgery. We report a case of intrapericardial teratoma diagnosed noninvasively and removed surgically within the first three days of life. Furthermore, we compare the diagnostic accuracy of echocardiography and computerized tomography (CT), and discuss the superiority of noninvasive evaluation in the management of these critically ill infants.
