VACTERL Association is a sporadic, non-random association of specific birth defects. The word VACTERL is an acronym, where each letter of the word relates to an area of abnormalities. Formally known as VATER Syndrome, this condition is now generally termed as VACTERL due to the addition of other areas of defects known to be connected with the condition.
