Introduction: Teratomas are congenital tumors consisting of derivatives from the ectoderm, endoderm and mesoderm germ cell layers. A teratoma is considered to be a non-seminomatous germ cell tumor and is typically located in either the sacrococcygeal region or in the gonads.

Case report: A 35-year-old male patient with severe nausea and vomiting was taken to the emergency ward of Hamadan Be’sat Hospital. He had not been feeling well, and had suffering from abdominal pain for a month. A physical examination showed some concretion in the right side of his abdomen.
