On physical examination, the newborn’s vitals are: blood pressure 86/45 mm Hg, heart rate 140 beats/minute, respiratory rate 25 breaths/minute, and temperature 37.0 °C.
The newborn is large for his gestational age. Head, eyes, ears, nose, and throat examination reveals a large tongue. Heart and lung examination findings are normal. The child has a sac-covered mass protruding from the abdomen.
