Congenital orbital teratoma though rare is available in this environment. This is a case report of a baby with a protruding orbital mass in the left eye with all classical clinical features of teratoma. Though the histopathological report fell short of confirming the diagnosis the clinical features and outcome of management strongly suggest that the lesion is a teratoma. Multidisciplinary approach to the management not only saved the life of the baby in question but also enhanced the outcome of treatment. Good and compliant follow up for six months was experienced. Cytological test is mandatory for any suspected cases of teratoma.
