Gastric teratoma is a rare tumor in neonate. The incidence of gastric teratoma is less than 1% of all types of teratoma. While it arises from greater curvature of stomach, it may be exogastric or endogastric variety. Most gastric teratoma is mature. There are only 13 reported cases of immature gastric teratoma arising from lesser curvature of stomach. We are reporting such a case with review of literature.
