Help name problem in passport and ecfmg certification

hi everyone,
I have some unusual problem with my middle name. My middle name spelling in passport and medical transcripts doesnt match. There is just a single alphabet error. I want to know which middle name either passport or medical transcript's middle name should I enter for ecfmg registration?

And in future would it be problem for me if my middle name spelling doesnt match with passport one.
looking forward for help.

You are likely to run into troubles. Try to unify your medical school transcript name with your passport name and use it for ECFMG registration.

Thanks for your reply. But ECFMG states that if my name on the medical transcripts doesnt match with the name on ecfmg certification then I would have to submit a letter from the dean to verify that the name on ecfmg certificate and transcripts belong to same person.

Is that an alternative in case if university administration refuses to change the spelling of my middle name?

Yes. That's an option.

So in that case give ECFMG your passport name.
