Sacrococcygeal teratoma is a very rare but often malignant congenital embryonic tumor. We report a case in an infant X aged 5 months, born eutocically in a pregnancy estimated at term. It was a third gesture, two parities and an abortion, a pregnancy punctuated by several episodes of illnesses not elucidated by her mother until childbirth. Due to the lack of a technical platform, the infant was not taken care of.
