Abstract: This hospital based prospective descriptive study highlights the point prevlance of congenital anomalies in one year. The number of congenital anomalies were more in males (M: F = 1.6:1.4), in neonates of young (= 20 years) and elderly mothers (= 35 years). The pattern of congenital anomalies included musculoskeletal (30.6%), CNS (20.5%), GIT (18.5%), skin (7.6%), genitourinary (4.7%), CVS (4%) etc. In musculoskeletal group, telipes was most common malformation followed by spinabifida and polydactyly. In CNS, group meningomyeleceole was the most common malformation followed by anencephaly and hydrocephalus. Frequency of congenital anomalies were more common in muslims as compared to hindus (1.77% vs. 1.4%), in cesarean born babies as compared to vaginally delivered (1.96% vs. 1.48%), in LBW babies (4.95%) and still born as compared to live born babies (4.46% vs. 1.39%). Present study stress upon the importance to carrying out a thorough clinical examination of neonate at birth.
