Since 1988, when Rogers first described a boy with anophthalmia associated with esophageal atresia, eight similar cases have been reported. These patients lend support to the hypothesis that this association of congenital anomalies constitutes a discrete entity, although the etiology is still unknown. We report a patient with this combination of malformations as well as a marked hypoplasia of the entire left half of the body.
