Epidemiological study of genitourinary tract anomalies in spain 1976 1982


, : Epidemiological study of genitourinary tract anomalies in spain 1976 1982. Revista Espanola de Pediatria 41(241): 53-62

A study on birth defects of the genitourinary tract is presented from an epidemiological point of view. Over 883 livebirths with some anomalies of the genitourinary tract, gathered from 1976 to 1982 in 46 maternity wards were analyzed as to their prevalence at birth, distribution, maternal age, birth weight, survival, maternal vaginal bleeding, birth presentation and sex ratio. The need of forming as homogeneous ethiopathogenic groups as possible has made it possible to separate the different types of anomalies in 3 groups depending upon whether they: presented as an only defect in the newborn (isolated); were together with other defects in a non-syndromic picture (associated); or formed part of a described syndrome.
