BRUN SANJINES, Jorge et al. Teratoma maduro cráneo facial derecho: presentación de un caso clínico inusual. Cuad. - Hosp. Clín. [online]. 2007, vol.52, n.1, pp. 64-68. ISSN 1562-6776.

The ripe teratoma is a pathology that appears seldom in the craneo facial region, since in the literature the teratomas in the sacro coccigeal area are described more often. In boys it appears at a very young age, and in girls close to puberty being localized in the ovaries. These tumours must be surgically excised, trying to extirpate them totally in order to avoid reappearance of the growth. We present the case of a 4 days old newborn who was admitted to the Hospital del Niño in La Paz, due to a tumour in the right lateral craneo facial region, of mixed consistence, base not movable, with a dimension of 10 cm x 10 cm. With the purpose to arrive at a diagnose that permitted the excision of the tumour, various complementary examinations were carried out which finally made the surgical extirpation possible being the tumour a ripe right craneo facial teratoma. We publish the present case because of its unusual localization and dimensions.

Palabras clave : craneo facial teratoma; excision; surgery of reparation and reconstruction.
