Abstract

Gastric teratoma accounts for less than 1% of all teratomas occurring in children, usually males 1. These tumors may be benign or malignant and complete excision of the tumor in either case carries a good prognosis. This rare case is an addition to the few cases of gastric teratomas in females reported in world literature and presenting as an exophytic & endophytic growth.
