Epidemiology of congenital abnormalities in Bahrain
AbstractThis study was carried out in order to find out the incidence of congenital anomalies in Bahrain. Statistics of the Bahraini Ministry of Health for 11 years from 1980 to 1990 were studied. The overall incidence rate of congenital anomalies in Bahrain was found to be 2.7% of live births. Each anomaly was studied separately and compared with the incidence in other countries, whenever possible. It was found that anomalies of the musculoskeletal system have the highest incidence [2.28 per 1000], followed by the genitourinary system [2.13 per 1000], while the incidence of chromosomal disorders was 0.9 per 1000
