  1. Congenital abnormalities in children with cancer and their relatives : results from a case-control study (IRESCC).

    Article - En anglais

    Several studies have revealed an excess of malformations in children with certain malignancies.

    A few environmental causes have been identified which may damage the foetus and lead to malformation and cancer.

    However, most of the numerous recognised cancer/malformation syndromes are genetically determined.

    This report describes a case-control study of 555 newly diagnosed children with cancer and 1,110 matched controls, chosen from general practitioner lists (GP controls) and hospital admissions (H controls).

    Their parents were interviewed on topics of possible aetiological significance and medical records were checked to confirm reports at interview.
