New finding of Schinzel-Giedion syndrome: A case with a malignant sacrococcygeal teratoma

Academic Article


  • We report on a boy with Schinzel-Giedion syndrome (SGS) with a previously unreported manifestation, a malignant sacrococcygeal teratoma. This is the second case of SGS to have a malignancy, as one earlier case had a hepatoblastoma. We postulate that the occurrence of 2 uncommon embryonic tumors among these patients with a rare syndrome may mean that risk of malignancy may be a component of this syndrome.
