Abstract

Abstract THE CERVICAL region is generally considered to be an uncommon location for the development of teratomas.1 In addition, most of such tumors have occurred in newborn or stillborn infants. Recent experience with the management of cervical teratomas in older children prompted a review of the problem as seen by the surgical service of the hospitals affiliated with Emory University. During the 18-year period from Jan 1, 1948, through Dec 31, 1965, five patients underwent surgical excision of a teratoma situated in the anterior compartment of the neck. The following is a report of these patients together with a summary of all cases previously recorded in the medical literature. Report of Cases Case 1.—On Aug 9, 1956, this 20-year-old Negro woman was admitted to the hospital for evaluation of a mass located in the vicinity of the thyroid gland. The lesion had been present for one year, but it had References 1. Willis, R.A.: Pathology of Tumours , ed 3, London: Butterworth & Co., 1960, pp 944-985. 2.
