VCTERL-H Syndrome

Interesting; most of us know that rhombencephalosynapsis can occur without having GLH, however, I have thought of Gomez-Lopez-Hernandez Syndrome to be the only known syndrome associated with rhombencephalosynapsis. This abstract (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19057916) states that VACTERL-H may be another associated syndrome. In the old Rooms of Jade forum, I read of some people missing their radius bone, which is one of the abnormalities caused by VCTERL-H. Another symptom of VCTERL-H is hydrocephalus.
