Intracranial teratoma in the newborn is a well-recognized but infrequent entity. We describe two such cases: one with a massive intracranial teratoma replacing the cerebral hemispheres and the other, a smaller tumor extending into the orbit. Forms of congenital intracranial teratoma and theories of pathogenesis and management are briefly discussed.
