  1. Maternal smoking and urinary organ malformations.

    Article - En anglais


    In order to investigate whether an earlier reported association between maternal smoking during pregnancy and urinary organ malformations could be confirmed, a study was made using Swedish health registries.


    Infants with kidney malformations (n=483) and infants with other urinary organ malformations with no primary involvement of the kidney (s) (n=719) were selected among 1 117 021 infants born 1983-1993 with known smoking exposure in early pregnancy.


    A moderate, statistically significant association between maternal smoking and kidney malformations was found (adjusted odds ratio [OR]=1.22,95% confidence interval [CI] : 1.00-1.48).

    With the exception of genetic renal polycystic disease, the main subgroups of kidney malformations showed similar OR.

    For other urinary organ malformations, no association with smoking could be detected (OR=0.93,95% Cl : 0.79-1.11).


    This study supports an association between maternal smoking during pregnancy and kidney malformations.

    No obvious confounders were detected but further work is needed before a causal inference can be made.
