The association of vertebral, cardiac, renal, limb anomalies, anal atresia, tracheo-esophageal fistula (VACTERL) with hydrocephalus (VACTERL-H) has recently been described. Both X linked and autosomal recessive forms have been described which are mostly indistinguishable clinically. Here we report a female newborn infant with hydrocephalus detected antenatally, oesophageal atresia with tracheo-oesophageal fistula, anal atresia, renal and vertebral anomalies, and triphalangeal thumb as well as primary hypothyroidism.
