    ABSTRACT: Introduction: The word “Teratoma” derives from the Greek word “teratos” including the meaning show. Teratoid tumors derived from the transformation of multipotent germ cells. They are composed of ectodermal, endodermic and mesodermal tissues in variable proportions; hence the term “embryonic tumor”. Objectives: We are reporting the case of a mature teratoma discovered in a young child whose delivery was vaginally performed. Through this case we put in diagnostic and therapeutic highlight and we made a literature review. Case report: Patient 17 months admitted for the anterior compartment mass associated with inspiratory dyspnea. No anomaly/abnormality was detected during the follow-up of the pregnancy. The Patient with dyspnea grade 2 was admitted according to Chevaleir-Jackson classification. No abnormalities of stature ponderal developments were noted. Surgery of excision was our therapeutic alternative. Through the pathological examination a mature teratoma was found. Conclusion: Teratoma is a rare condition. Proper management of mature teratoma helps to prevent recurrence.
