Tracheoesophageal anomalies in oculoauriculovertebral (Goldenhar) spectrum.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics, University of South Florida, Tampa 33617-3451, USA.


Tracheoesophageal fistula, with or without esophageal atresia (TEF/EA) appears to be a defect of blastogenesis, as is the oculoauriculovertebral (Goldenhar) spectrum (OAVS), with which it has occasionally been associated. We reviewed the records of all OAVS patients evaluated through the University of South Florida Regional Genetics Program between 1985 and 1993. Of 60 OAVS patients, three had TEF/EA. These results suggest that TEF/EA in association with OAVS is underreported. The occurrence of TEF/EA should prompt a thorough search for other known anomalies of OAVS.
