Surgeons at the Johns Hopkins Hospital of Baltimore, Maryland, said that they have removed a rare tumor that contained several teeth that were well developed from the brain of a baby.

The baby's mother said that she took her son to the pediatrician after the baby suffered from nasal congestion. Doctors discovered that the baby's head had grown significantly from two weeks before, when it was measured during a routine visit.

An ultrasound and CT scan revealed a large tumor, which doctors said they had to remove with surgery. “The tumor was very large and the baby was so small,” a doctor close to the case said.

“To do this kind of surgery on a four-month-old baby is very risky, but something had to be done immediately,” the doctor added.
