The article presents teratomas of rare localization in children according to the authors' observations from 2003 to 2015. During this period, 69 children were examined and treated at the Department of Hospital Pediatric Surgery of Tashkent Pediatric medical institute. Sacro-coccygeal teratomas were detected in 52 (75.4%), teratomas of rare localization in 17 (24.6%) children aged from 1 month to 14 years old. Among the observed children the girls were 42 (60.9%), the boys - 27 (39.1%). For diagnostic purposes, in addition to generally accepted clinical and laboratory studies, the children underwent ultrasound, MSCT, rectoromanoscopy, irrigology, excretory urography examinations. Considering that the teratomas are mixed tumors of a complex structure, capable of malignancy, the details of the clinical course, diagnosis and results of treatment of children with the presented pathology were studied in this research. Based on the analysis of the described observations, the authors came to the conclusion that there is a need for an early surgical intervention, which has no alternative in treating children with teratomas, regardless of their type, localization and extent of the process, in order to avoid the risk of developing severe complications.
