Abstract

Thrombocytopenia with absent radii (TAR) is rare cause of neonatal thrombocytopenia. TAR syndrome and esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula has been reported in only two cases in literature. Our case was the first in literature with unilateral TAR syndrome and bilateral absence of thumbs accompanying EA.
