Three-dimensional power Doppler sonography in the diagnosis of a cystic sacrococcygeal teratoma mimicking a meningomyelocele: A case report.

Abstract

Sacrococcygeal teratomas have been diagnosed prenatally on sonograms as masses of cystic, solid, or mixed echogenicity from the sacral area and protruding through the perineum or buttocks.
