The combination of all the clinico-radiographic findings made VACTERL association
(VA) (Vertebral anomalies, Anal atresia, Cardiac defects, Tracheoesophageal fistula and/or Esophageal atresia, Renal anomalies and Limb defects) the most likely diagnosis.
My six-year-old daughter, Chantel, was diagnosed with kidney problems, deaf in one ear, blindness as a result of immature retinas (though that has corrected itself), and spinal cord anomalies problems, and VACTERL association
(Vertebral anomalies, Anal Atresia, congenital Cardiac disease, Tracheo Esophageal fistula, Renal anomalies, radial dysplasia, and other Limb defects).
Mandy, who will be entering the second grade in the fall was born with VACTERL Association
Mandy's condition, VACTERL association, involved a number of medical problems, including kidney and spinal defects, but I was so concerned with Mandy's arms that her other conditions seemed to pale in comparison.
Mandy, who has VACTERL association, attends morning kindergarten at Eberwhite Elementary School in Ann Arbor.
