Clin Dysmorphol. 2000 Jul;9(3):205-8. doi: 10.1097/00019605-200009030-00010.


We report on a male infant, born to nonconsanguineous parents, with a vertebral anomaly, cardiac defect, tracheo-oesophageal fistula and hypospadias (VACTERL association) together with bilateral tibial aplasia. This pattern of abnormalities appears to represent a unique syndrome.
