  1. Epidemiologic characteristics of phenotypically distinct neural tube defects among 0.7 million California births, 1983-1987.

    Article - En anglais

    Isolated neural tube defects (NTDs) appear to have different risk factors compared to nonisolated NTDs.

    To extend those observations, we explored routinely collected child and parental characteristics as possible risk factors among isolated versus nonisolated NTD cases, among high versus law spina bifida cases, and among open versus skin-covered spina bifida cases.

    Fetuses and liveborn infants with anencephaly or spina bifida among the 1983-87 cohort of births and fetal deaths (n=712,863) were ascertained by the California Birth Defects Monitoring Program.

    One hundred and ninety-three anencephalic cases and 272 spina bifida cases were compared to a random sample of 5,000 liveborn infants.
