VACTERL-H association

Last revised by Vincent Tatco on 27 Jul 2022

The VACTERL-H association is a rare non-random association which bears the features of the standard VACTERL association with added fetal hydrocephalus.

Unlike the standard VACTERL association which is sporadic, the VACTERL-H is hereditary with both X-linked 3 and autosomal recessive 2 inheritance patterns being recognized.  

It carries an extremely poor prognosis.
