Bottom Line: Umbilical cord neoplasms are rare.Teratomas, which are accepted as the only true neoplasms at this site, are exceptional.Immature elements as seen in our case are rare.

ABSTRACT
Umbilical cord neoplasms are rare. Teratomas, which are accepted as the only true neoplasms at this site, are exceptional. These tumors are polymorphic in their presentation and are often associated with other abnormalities, with exomphalos being the most common abnormality. Histologically these tumors show mature tissues from all the three-germ layers. Immature elements as seen in our case are rare. Germ cells which have gone astray during embryonic development are thought to be the cells of origin of these tumors.

Figure 2: Sections showing bone, cartilage and mature glial tissue. Inset showing neuroepithelial tubules (H and E, ×400)

Mentions: Histologically the mass showed skin with dermal appendages, respiratory and intestinal type of epithelia along with pancreatic tissue. Loose connective tissue, adipose tissue, bone, cartilage, glial tissue and choroid plexus were also seen with neuroepithelial tubules predominating [Figure 2].
