ABSTRACT: True Epignathus are extremely rare forms of teratoid tumors arising from the palate or pharynx in the region of the basisphenoid (Rathke's pouch) filling the buccal cavity and protruding from the mouth. This condition is associated with a high mortality rate due to severe airway obstruction especially in the neonatal period. This requires prenatal planning and prompt surgical treatment after birth. We describe a case where two swellings were arising from the tongue and oropharynx and was associated with cleft palate which we attempted to salvage with prompt surgery.
