We present a female neonate born with an unusually located hairy back mass. There were no further anomalies on physical examination. The mass was not discovered on routine prenatal sonography. Complete surgical removal was achieved without complications and histological examination was consistent with mature teratoma.The differential diagnosis of back masses in the newborn and the classification and work-up of neonatal teratomas are reviewed.This case suggests that even though most teratomas are located in the sacroccocygeal region, prenatal screening should not overlook the possibility of additional uncommon locations.
