Abstract

SAGGERS, RT; CHARLTON, R; NONGENA, P  and  VELAPHI, S C. Sirenomelia with major cardiac anomalies. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2021, vol.15, n.4, pp.224-225. ISSN 1999-7671.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAJCH.2021.v15i4.1815.

Sirenomelia is a rare and serious congenital anomaly characterised by fusion of the lower limbs, usually a single umbilical artery and malformations of the genitourinary and gastrointestinal tracts. In this report, we present clinical and radiological features, as well as autopsy findings, in a patient with sirenomelia diagnosed at the time of delivery. Major cardiac defects were observed, namely transposition of the great vessels and a hypoplastic left ventricle.
