Cervical teratoma is very rare. We are presenting here a case of cervical immature teratoma in a neonate with review of literature. A 17-day-old male baby with huge cervical teratoma and oral extension presented to us with feeding difficulties. We completely excised the tumor. The infant was discharged after 7 days with mild facial palsy. Uneventful recovery followed without recurrence. Histopathology suggested immature cystic teratoma. There was huge cervical teratoma with oral extension in the neonate. It was located at the cervical region which is very rare, and it was present in the male baby. We completely excised the tumor with mild facial palsy without recurrence. It should be kept in mind in case of neck swelling in a neonate. Cervical teratoma is a rare variety.
