VACTERL syndrome is a condition with a range of findings beginning at birth. The name of the syndrome is actually a mnemonic for some possible findings in the disorder: vertebral anomalies, anal atresia, cardiac defects, tracheoeophageal fistula with esophageal atresia, renal (kidney) anomalies, and limb defects (eg, radius defects). The most common findings are tracheoesophageal fistula with anal atresia or vertebral defects.

There are many good online resources about VACTERL syndrome, its epidemiology (how many people have it, etc.), etiology and pathophysiology (what causes it), signs and symptoms, associated findings, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.

I see you are asking "What are the symptoms for vacterl association?"

These abnormalities most commonly include poorly developed or missing thumbs or underdeveloped forearms and hands. Some of the features of VACTERL association can be subtle and are not identified until late in childhood or adulthood, making diagnosis of this condition difficult.

What is a mermaid cendrome?

Sirenomelia, alternatively known as Mermaid Syndrome is a very rare congenital deformity in which the legs are fused together, giving the appearance of a mermaid. This condition is found in approximately one out of every 70,000 live births (about as rare as conjoined twins) and is usually fatal within a day or two of birth because of complications associated with abnormal kidney and bladder development and function. It results from a failure of normal vascular supply from the lower aorta in utero. Maternal diabetes has been associated with caudal regression syndrome and sirenomelia, although this association is not generally accepted. VACTERL-H is an expanded form of the VACTERL association that concludes that this diagnosis is a less severe form of sirenomelia.The disorder was formerly thought to be an extreme case of Caudal regression syndrome; however, it was reclassified to be considered a separate condition.
