For congenital teratomas, oropharyngeal cavity is one of the rarest sites (2% of all teratomas). They are rarely picked up by prenatal ultrasonography. Postnatally, newborns present with respiratory distress and at this point role of pediatricians is very crucial in establishing secure airway after which they need to be carefully evaluated and surgically managed. We present a female neonate with palatal teratoma which was treated successfully with surgery.
