Vertebral, anal, cardiac, tracheoesophageal, renal and limb (VACTERL) association is defined by the presence of at least three of the following six congenital malformations: vertebral defects, anal atresia, cardiac defects, tracheo-esophageal fistula, renal anomalies and limb abnormalities. The abdominal cystic mass, suspicious of colon atresia was identified on prenatal ultrasonography. The new born infant exhibited single umbilical artery, hemivertebra, hypoplastic nasal bone, ventricular septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, colon atresia. For treatment of colon atresia, two staged surgery was provided by a pediatric surgeon. We experienced colon atresia, a very rare comorbid condition in VACTERL association. Prompt diagnosis and surgical correction was possible with the cooperation of pediatric surgeons, obstetricians and pediatricians.
