Abstract

Congenital cranial teratomas are a well-recognized but infrequent entity and are usually characterized by complete loss of the normal intracranial architecture. They contain tissues from all three germ layers. This review presents the clinical features, diagnostic methods and management of cranial teratomas based on our experience and the literature.
