Abstract

Cervical neck teratoma in adult is rare. It has a distinctly different clinicopathological behavior compared to those of the neonate and infant. We report an 18-year-old man who presented with a benign cervical neck teratoma, and present a review of cervical neck teratoma in the literature. Surgery is the primary modality of treatment as malignant transformation occurs during adulthood. The diagnosis of malignancy is based on histopathologic examination. Adjuvant chemotherapy is indicated when malignancy is confirmed.
