The hallmark of sacrococcygeal teratoma is a protruding mass at the sacrococcygeal region. It is important to obtain the history about the onset, and the progression of the symptoms. Most common symptoms of sacrococcygeal teratoma are due to compression caused by the large tumor mass. Maternal symptoms can include hypertension, vomiting, and peripheral edema. Adults can present with lower back pain, tingling and numbness of the lower limbs, weakness, and constipation.
