Using the population-based data from the Metropolitan Atlanta Congenital Defects Program, the interrelation of the six defects that are components of the VACTERL association were investigated.

There were 76 cases with three or more defects, whereas less than one case was expected. Of these 76 cases, seven had recognized causes (five chromosomal anomalies… CONTINUE READING
