Sacrococcygeal teratomas are tumors that arise in the sacrococcygeal area containing tissue from all three germ layers. Sacrococcygeal teratoma has an incidence of ~one in 27 000 live births, with malignant transformation with increasing age. We report a unique case of a 6-year-old child with a large sacrococcygeal mass with rudimentary genitals with an intraoperative intraoral misplacement of the endotracheal tube during positioning.
