Non-Genetic Etiologies of Congenital Defects VIEW DETAILS  

Birth defects can be due to causes other than chromosome or single gene disorders. Multifactorial inheritance combines a genetic predisposition, likely caused by variations in several genes, with other influences, such as sex of the proband and environmental factors. Environmental factors may include maternal diet, nutritional deficiencies and teratogens. Congenital anomalies may result from intrauterine deformational forces, such as an elongated head shape after breech position, or the distended abdominal wall resulting from a massively enlarged bladder due to urethral obstruction. Recurrence risk for such abnormalities depends on their underlying cause.
