Intrapericardial teratomas often present as life-threatening problems when diagnosed during fetal life. They are large lesions that compress the heart and lungs and can result in tamponade if not treated expeditiously. We present a case of a large teratoma that was managed by prenatal pericardiocentesis followed by surgical resection.
