Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia in a Case of Patau Syndrome: A Rare Association
Keywords:Congenital diaphragmatic hernia, Patau syndrome, Congenital anomalies
Congenital DiaphragmaticHernia (CDH) occurs in 5-10% associated with chromosomal abnormalities like, Pallister Killian syndrome, Trisomy 18, and certain deletions. Association of CDH with trisomy 13 (Patau syndromes) is very rare. Here, we report such an unusual association, where surgical repair was done, but eventually the case succumbed as a result of multiple fatal co-morbidities.
