Ella's pregnancy and birth story. A sacrococcygeal teratoma survivor. #sacrococcygealteratoma #childhoodtumor #tumorsurvivor #miraclebaby #nicu #nicumom

"A sacrococcygeal teratoma is a tumor with tissue or organ components resembling normal derivatives of all three germ layers. Teratomas have been reported to contain hair, teeth, bone and very rarely more complex organs such as eyeball, torso and hand. In this case,  the mass is lobulated with some limb like projection. Part is cystic and the remaining part is firm in consistency."
