Background and purpose: Çongenital anomalies are important causes of morbidity and mortality in newborns. These anomalies have hereditary and environmental causes. Â newborn with congenital anomaly, creates emotional problemes and high expenses for parents. This study was done to identify prevalance and some important factors of obvious congenital anomalies in live newborns in Fatemieh hospital of Hamedan.
Materials and methods: Ïn this descriptive study, 4252 new borns during march to september 1999 referring to Fatemieh hospital were selected, out of which, 122 new borns with obvious congenital anomalies in the first six months of 1999 were compared with four fold of the above mentioned number i.e. 500 new borns without obvious Çongenital anomalies.
Results: Prevalance of obvious congenital anomaly was reported tobe 2.8%. The most common anomalies were urogenital (48.7 %), musculoskeletal (23.1 %), craniofacial (8.5%), skin (6.8%) and nervous system (2.6%). Prevalance of anomalies was greater in males than females. There was a statistically significant relationship between anomalies and route of delivery and drug consumption during pregnancy.
Çonclusion: Âccording to a relationship between anomaly and drug consumption during pregnancy more education to pregnant women is recommended.
