Abstract

VACTERL (V-Vertebral, A-Anorectal, C-Cardiac, TE-Tracheoesophageal, R-Renal, L-Limb) is an acronym for multiple organ dysfunction, which often occurs together. These prospects may affect patients with other abnormalities, such as urogenital abnormalities. Here we present a case of VACTERL syndrome with ambiguous genitalia who was referred and hospitalized due to recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) and urosepsis. A colovesical fistula was discovered in the following examinations, which could explain this complication.

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

It is essential to be aware of the co-existing comorbidities associated with VACTERL (V-Vertebral, A-Anorectal, C-Cardiac, TE-Tracheoesophageal, R-Renal, L-Limb) syndrome, as these may have a crucial impact on prognosis and outcome.
