Sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) is the commonest fetal tumor. We report a case of fetal SCT requiring emergency hysterotomy at 21+4 weeks of gestation. A 22 years primigravida, with prior uneventful antenatal care, presented at 21+4 weeks of gestation with on and off pain abdomen and back for 3 days associated with passage of show for 1 day. Vital signs were stable and her abdomen was tense and tender with fundal height of 30 weeks. She was in early labor. Urgent USG revealed a live intrauterine fetus with features suggestive of huge fetal SCT for which she underwent emergency hysterotomy.
