In this report we describe a newborn with a rare case of Type II tracheal  agenesis and bronchoesophageal fstula. Polyhydramnios and suspected esoph- ageal atresia were identifed during routine pre-natal ultrasound screening. Upon  delivery, rigid bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy, and intraoperative fuoroscopy were  performed, where both bronchi and the carina showed unusual horizontal orienta- tion making it diffcult to identify the fstula. However, a post mortem CT confrmed  the diagnosis of an isolated Type II tracheal agenesis with bronchoesophageal fs- tula.
