This is a report of a 3yearold girl with findings of FATCO (fibular aplasia-tibial campomelia-oligodactyly) syndrome associated with ventricular septal defect. This is the first ever FATCO syndrome report in an African child to the best of the authors' knowledge. Association of the rare FATCO syndrome with cardiac defects is a rather rarer finding in medical literature. Does this combination of rarities suggest an emerging genetic syndrome?
