This image depicted the left foot of a newborn, which displayed the congenital deformity known as clubbing of the foot. In this case, the foot clubbing was a VACTERL association disorder, which is short for vertebral defects, anal atresia, cardiac defects, tracheo-esophageal fistula, renal anomalies, and limb abnormalities. VACTERL association, or a nonrandom association of specific newborn abnormalities, include to name a few, vertebral dysgenesis, anal defect, cardiac anomalies, tracheoesophageal fistulae, esophageal atresia, radial limb and renal anomalies.
