Right aortic arch-peculiar facies-intellectual deficit is a rare association syndrome. It has been reported in one family only, affecting a mother and three of her children. Three of the patients had esophageal indentation demonstrated by X ray examination after barium swallow, suggesting left ligamentum arteriosum or anomalous left subclavian artery. Two of the patients had microcephaly. A stillborn child had anencephaly and another died at 10 months with congenital heart disease and microcephaly. This association may be inherited as an autosomal dominant condition.
