Vascular ring leading to tracheoesophageal compression in a patient with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome.


Journal Article

Mediastinal vascular rings cause tracheoesophageal obstruction, resulting in respiratory symptoms and dysphagia in children. Although a large number of children with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome have frequent respiratory infections and feeding difficulties, there has been no firmly established association between this syndrome and the occurrence of vascular rings. We report on a patient with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome who had a vascular ring. Since there was a previous report of a similar ring in a child with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome, we suggest there may be an association between Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome and vascular rings.
