The literature data and own observation of the newborn, who died from VACTERL association, is presented and analyzed. The development of VACTERL association is a rare but menacing congenital disease, which requires repeated surgical interventions at the first days of life in most cases. In the presented observation of the newborn two operations during the life were carried out: thoracoscopic ligation tracheoesophageal fistula with the imposition of direct oesophago-oesophageal anastomosis because of esophageal atresia and imposition of unnatural anus in the transverse colon because of anal аtresia. According to comprehensive intravital clinical examination, postmortem radiological and autopsy studies anomalies of the skeletal system, heart, blood vessels, agenesis of the kidney were detected. It is concluded that it is expedient to carry out post-mortem CT and MRI examination in addition to the autopsy.
