Abstract


Abstract

Sirenomelia is a rare fatal congenital defect characterized by fusion of lower extremities. It is associated with thoracolumbar and spinal anomalies, genitourinary and anorectal atresia. Respiratory and upper gastrointestinal tract malformation like oesophageal atresia occurs in about 20-35% cases but its occurrence with sirenomelia has been rarely reported in the literature. This is a rare case of sirenomelia with oesophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula.
