	abstract = {Teratomas of the anterior mediastinum are infrequent germ cell tumour. These tumours occur at all ages, but are rarely discovered before puberty. We report a case of anterior mediastinal mature teratoma in a baby girl aged 5 months who presented to us with recurrent infectious pneumonia associated with hemoptysis since one month. Computed tomographic scan of thorax revealed a large anterior mediastinal mass measuring 8.01×6.72×7.28 cm3 with calcification within. The authors report this current case to emphasize the importance of the multidisciplinary care and perioperative approach between anaesthesiologist and surgeon to a successful management of a huge mediastinal mature teratoma in an infant. Tips, tricks and pitfalls are proposed in this paper for a surgical outcome effective and no clinical complication.},
