Primary cardiac tumors are rare, accounting for <0.2% of all childhood tumors. They can be diagnosed prenatally. Intrapericardial teratoma is a rare benign tumor that presents either due to the mass effect of the tumor or secondary pericardial effusion. Thymus is an important part of the immune system in the pediatric age group. Thymic lesions are rare causes of anterior mediastinal pathology. Their occurrence in children is rarer, nevertheless knowledge about their pathologies helps in clinching the correct diagnosis. We report a case of combined intrapericardial teratoma and thymoma that has not been reported previously in the literature.
