    Article - En anglais

    Anencephaly is Suspected to cluster in the municipality of Cubatao (Brazil), and is attributed to industrial pollution.

    We surveyed malformations prospectively in 10,000 births, in 3 consecutive series, corresponding to 3 maternity hospital in Cubatao, under working definitions and norms taken from the ECLAMC (Latin American Collaborative Study of Congenital Malformations).

    The sample from Cubatao had a higher proportion of black racial ancestry, and lower frequencies for stillbirths and for immediate neonatal death, than in the rest of South America.

    The birth prevalence of malformations varied betrveen the 3 hospitals in Cubatao, due to differences in ascertainment of minor defects.
