Abstract
Total 4210 babies were studied in the neonatal period immediately after birth, which shows overall 0.88%. incidence of congenital malformations. Incidence was significantly higher (6.1%) in mothers aged > 30 years as compared to younger age group. Religious pattern of mother and consanguinity of marriage had no much effect on the incidence. The incidence was marginally higher in primiparous patients (47.2%). Only in 12% of cases some etiological factors could be found, of which maternal fever in first trimester was the most common. 10 cases with CNS malformations had hydroamnious. The anomaly was detected antenatally in 49%cases with the help of USG. The ration of still birth to live birth was 4.19:1 suggesting that many of the anomalies are incompatible with life. There was no overall difference in the sex of the babies. However most of anencephalic babies were female. Preterm babies had four times more incidence of congenital malformations as compared to term babies. This represents “phenomenon of nature’s selection”. Associated hydroamnios also accounts for preterm labour similarly congenital malformations were more commonly found in low birth weight baby. Out of all system involved in congenital mal formation, CNS was the commonest and accounted for 1/3 rd of the cases.

Key words: Congenital, Abnormalities, Neonates

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
