Gastric teratoma is a very rare tumor which accounts for less than 1% of all teratomas in children. We report a case of gastric teratoma from the posterior wall occurring in a two-month-infant who presented a huge abdominal mass. CT and MRI demonstrated the presence of calcifications, and both solid and cystic areas. Tumor was recognized adjacent to both stomach and liver. The stretched gastric wall on sagittal T2WI was the important finding to diagnose the origin of the tumor.
