Esophageal atresia (EA) with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) and congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) are two relatively common neonatal conditions. The coexistence of the two conditions in the same newborn is extremely rare. This is a case report of a newborn with CDH and concurrent EA and TEF. Aspects of diagnosis and the literature on the subject are also reviewed.
