Abstract: Epignathus is an extremely rare form of teratoma that arises from the palate or pharynx in the region of the basisphenoid (Rathke's pouch). This condition is associated with a high mortality rate caused by severe airway obstruction in the neonatal period, thus requiring prenatal planning and prompt surgical treatment after birth. The authors describe a case of a giant epignathus that was successfully resected followed by an uneventful recovery.
