An oropharyngeal teratoma is a rare malformation. It is also known as epignathus. It is composed of all three germinal layer derived cells. Only few cases are reported. We present a case of large teratoma that was arising from the tongue in a newborn. Total surgical excision was performed and histological examination showed mature teratoma.
