Abstract
Introduction: Here, we present two case reports of adult female patients with the pathologic diagnosis of large sacrococcygeal teratoma.
Case Series: In the first patient (aged 19 years), pelvic ultrasonographic examination showed a large (85.9×88.7 mm) multiloculated complex cyst posterior to the cervix. No evidence of recurrence was observed post-resection. The histological examination of the specimen showed mature cystic teratoma with no malignancy. The second patient (aged 16 years) was with a history of slow progressive enlargement of a non-ulcerative mass in the gluteal region. Surgery was performed. On histopathological examination, the specimen showed chronically inflamed pilonidal sinus with mature cystic teratoma.
Conclusion: These two cases suggest that we should put in mind the differential diagnosis of teratoma in sacrococcygeal region masses and it can be cured with surgery if the tumor mass was completely resected with the coccygectomy.

Keywords: Abdominal pain, Pelvic ultrasonography, Pilonidal sinus, Sacrococcygeal teratoma
