A neonate antenatally diagnosed with a large cervical teratoma. The patient was delivered at 34 weeks gestation by ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedure due to impending airway obstruction. a Initial chest radiograph of patient post intubation. Note the high position of the endotracheal tube tip from difficult intubation (arrow).
