Seckel syndrome is an autosomal recessive disease presenting with marked growth retardation, microcephalic dwarfism, some facial and skeletal abnormalities. Tricuspid atresia is a rare and life threatening cyanotic congenital heart diseases, with an incidence of 1% to 3%. It is feature of the anatomically normally related great arteries with a large ventricular septum defect and stenosis of right ventricular outflow tract. Tricuspid atresia has never been reported in patients with Seckel syndrome. Here we report a 15-day-old girl baby diagnosed as having Seckel syndrome with tricuspid atresia.
