Abstract

We report a case of type I tracheal agenesis with vertebral defects, anal atresia, tracheoesophageal fistula and/or esophageal atresia, radial dysplasia, renal defects, and cardiovascular defects association in which computed tomography was helpful in categorizing the diagnosis. This rare and fatal condition should always be considered when confronted with a neonate impossible to resuscitate at birth.
