Sacrococcygeal teratomas are common congenital tumours that develop early in foetal life. Foetuses with this malformation are at risk for significant perinatal morbidity and mortality. This report demonstrates the role of foetal sonography in the diagnosis of sacrococcygeal teratoma and reviews the role of imaging in guiding antenatal and postnatal management.
