Intracranial teratoma

Miguel Octavio Sosa, MD

Maracaibo, Venezuela

This is a 33-year-old primigravida first seen at 25 weeks.  A large echogenic mass with minimal Doppler signal and no acoustic shadowing was seen. During the rest of the gestation the mass enlarged towards the frontal region and caused hydrocephalus.
