Gastric teratoma is relatively rare type of extra gonadal germ cell tumor which comprises <1% of all teratomas. It usually presents with abdominal mass and features of gastric outlet obstruction with or without gastrointestinal bleeding. Complete excision of the tumor is the best mode of treatment. Here, we report a case of gastric teratoma in a two month old male child where we had to go for partial gastrectomy owing to complete removal of the tumor.
