Default Matched but cant go due to personal issues

Hello

What happens if someone has matched for residency but cant go there due to personal issues and he will continue residency somewhere else, is this considered a draw back? will he loses any future chance in residency, fellowships in the US??

I believe it is a drawback since Matching is binding contract. If you are unable to fulfill this, it will show in your record as a violation and can hurt your chances of matching in subsequent years. I'm just not sure if there are ways around this.
