Charge association is a relatively rare pattern of congenital anomalies whose incidence is approximately 1:10.000. We describe our experience on a young boy (Cariotype 46-XY) with associated oesophageal atresia survived up to 12 years. We analyse the most relevant difficulties occurred in the treatment of this patient and we underline the importance of performing an early tracheostomy in order to improve the respiratory impairment. The management of this multiple complex malformations requests a multidisciplinary approach during the life.
