Abstract

A huge and extremely organoid mass, protruding from the mouth of a newborn and causing respiratory embarrassment, was resected. It was difficult to make a clear distinction whether this mass was fetus in fetu or a highly organoid epignathus dealing with the findings obtained from its gross and histological examination of the mass.
