BACKGROUND: Folic acid was proven in 1991 to prevent most cases of spina bifida and anencephaly. In 2008, less than 10% of folic acid-preventable spina bifida and anencephaly (FAPSBA) was prevented through folic acid fortification programs. This study updates the global estimates of the proportion of FAPSBA prevented with various types of folic acid fortification as of 2012. METHODS: For each country, we estimated the annual birth prevalence of FAPSBA and the daily amount of folic acid consumed from mandatory folic acid fortification programs...

BACKGROUND: Critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) was recently added to the U.S. Recommended Uniform Screening Panel for newborns. States considering screening requirements may want more information about the potential impact of screening. This study examined potentially avoidable mortality among infants with late detected CCHD and assessed whether late detection was associated with increased hospital resource use during infancy. METHODS: This was a state-wide, population-based, observational study of infants with CCHD (n = 3603) born 1998 to 2007 identified by the Florida Birth Defects Registry...

Sirenomelia or "mermaid syndrome" is a rare congenital anomaly known since antiquity. This congenital anomaly is defined as a polymalformative syndrome that associates major muscle and skeleton abnormalities (unique lower limbs) with visceral abnormalities (unilateral or bilateral renal agenesis, anomalies of the abdominal vascularisation). This phenotype, typical of sirenomelia syndrome, may be more or less severe. The pathogenic mechanisms of this syndrome are still debated and its etiology remains unknown...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: Here we apply objective, reliable methods of dysmorphology diagnosis to a patient with Johanson-Blizzard syndrome (MIM #243800). Using an extensive normative database, we computed standardized scores on a graded continuum for operational definitions of nasal alar hypoplasia, a commonly observed feature of this condition. CASE: Most of these measurements in this case were greater than 2 standard deviations below the mean, adjusted for age, gender, and ethnicity...

BACKGROUND: Neural tube defects (NTD)s, which occur when the neural tube fails to close during early gestation, are some of the most common birth defects worldwide. Alcohol is a known teratogen and has been shown to induce NTDs in animal studies, although most human studies have failed to corroborate these results. Using data from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study, associations between maternal reports of periconceptional (1 month prior through 2 months postconception) alcohol consumption and NTDs were examined...
