Sacrococcygeal teratoma is one of the most common tumours affecting newborns and infants. Currently, a diagnosis is most likely to be made in the prenatal period during routine ultrasonography examination. Delay in diagnosis and treatment may lead to the development of complications, fetal loss and increased perinatal mortality. This case report investigates rupture of the tumour at birth, one of the complications of sacrococcygeal teratoma. The baby in this case survived and showed a good postoperative recovery.
