Acute respiratory distress due to fast growing cystic mediastinal teratoma
Imamoglu M., Sarihan H.
The clinical presentation of benign mediastinal teratomas is often non-specific or incidental and acute respiratory distress was unusual. The previously healthy 27-day-old girl newborn presented with progressive tacphypnea, tachycardia and cyanosis developing one day before. The diagnosis was performed with chest roentgenogram and ultrasonography examination. Emergency surgical intervention was performed and a predominantly cystic mass was promptly excised. The postoperative course was uncomplicated.
