TACRD association

Friday 1 December 2006

TACRD association is an extremely rare condition composed of tracheal agenesis, cardiac, renal and duodenal malformations. It is distinct from the more common VACTERL association of which tracheo-esophageal fistula and not tracheal agenesis is a part.

TACRD association has complex internal malformations and lacks the external skeletal manifestations of VACTERL association.
