Congenital Malformations—Questions

Chapter

Abstract

It is remarkable that prenatal development so seldom goes awry and that babies born malformed are so few. But congenital malformations happen, and with the increasing control of many medical problems of the newborn they emerged into conspicuousness. It is this topic we turn to, asking what are malformations, what causes them, how often do they happen.
