Trends of congenital malformations in neo nates in 2 calcutta india hospitals with special reference to anencephaly


, : Trends of congenital malformations in neo nates in 2 calcutta india hospitals with special reference to anencephaly. Journal of the Indian Anthropological Society 15(2-3): 157-166

The major birth defects [in India] occur less frequently in the neonates of Calcutta hospitals than in Bombay or in the semirural Andhra town of Tirupati. The incidence is still lower in the recorded births during 1955-1977 among the urban upper strata than in that during 1965-1977 among the rural and poor people. There is also a declining trend of anencephaly in the former series. The incidence of anencephaly is usually 3 times as great in female fetuses as compared to males, while other anomalies exceed in males. It occurs more often in Tirupati, an area of high inbreeding, among the Sikhs and other Punjabis as well as Muslims and Christians than among the Hindus of Calcutta.
