Abstract

The possibility that a rare tumor such as sacro-coccygeal teratoma, occurring in a newborn whose mother was treated by Human Menopausal Gonadotropins (HMG) and Human Chorionic Gonadotropins (HCG), because of non-ovulatory sterility, might not be co-incidental, induced us to report this case.
