  1. Is there etiologic heterogeneity between upper and lower neural tube defects ?

    Article - En anglais

    Neural tube defects are thought to arise from two different embryologic mechanisms depending on the level of the defect: neurulation defects associated with anencephaly and upper spina bifida and canalization defects associated with lower spina bifida.

    To investigate whether the risk profiles of neural tube defect cases differ according to the level of the defect, the authors examined data from the Atlanta Birth Defects Case-Control Study.

    Cases were infants liveor stillborn from 1968 to 1980 with these defects, and controls were infants without defects randomly selected and frequency matched to cases by race, birth year, and hospital of birth.
