Type 4 tumors are usually diagnosed in the postnatal period and have higher potential for malignancy. we report a case of type 4 SCT that detected by ultrasonography at a gestational of 21.6 weeks. Ultrasound scan in our hospital showed a cystic lesion with septation (39.5 × 14.3 × 8.62 mm) in the fetal sacrococcygeal region. Tumor growth and heart failure monitored with serial scans. At 39 weeks of gestation cesarean section was performed due to previous cesarean. Afterward surgery was performed successfully at 72 hours of life. The pathologic diagnosis was Mature cystic teratoma. Follow up controls revealed normal and healthy child growth.
