A teratoma is not an uncommon tumor in the pediatric age group. It has a predilection for specific sites, but a teratoma arising from the hepatoduodenal ligament (HDL) is very rare. Only 15 cases of HDL teratoma have been reported so far. Due to the proximity to important structures, it is imperative that the correct anatomical localization is done preoperatively to avoid intraoperative surprises. Herein, we report a case of HDL teratoma in a toddler who underwent a successful excision. The relevant literature is also discussed briefly from a pediatric surgeon's perspective.
