Abstract

The teratoma is a tumor originating from pluripotential cells and composed of a great diversity of tissues foreign to the organ. Its cervical localization is rare. The management remains surgical in order to avoid complications and reduce the risk of malignant transformation. We report a case of low cervical localization in an 11-year-old girl. Clinical examination and ultrasound of the tumour evoked goiter. The histopathological results, after total excision of the operating room, concluded to a mature pluritissular teratoma. The rare possibility of a recurrence of this benign tumor justifies a long-term follow-up of this young patient.
