All the 5607 newborns at the tertiary health care centre were screened for congenital malformation clinically and history of mothers like Iron Folic acid Consumption, Consanguinity, Maternal age, Fever with Rash, TORCH infection, Exposure to Smoking, Family history were asked. Result: The incidence of malformation was highest in the Age group >31 i.e. 4.26%and above age group followed by 15-20 1.21%; 26-30-0.81%; 21-25-0.43%and overall the incidence was observed to be 1.30%.The majority of the Associated Maternal Factors found were Age more than 31 Yrs. -53.42%; Inadequate IFA Supplementation -34.24%; H/o Fever with Rash -26.02%;H/o TORCH infection -20.54% H/o Exposure to Smoking -17.80%;Family history -16.43%;Consanguineous marriage -13.69%. The fetal factors associated with the Malformations were Male gender i.e. 63.01% followed by Low birth weight 61.64% ; Twins -20.54%; Birth order >4 -19.17%. Conclusion: In our study we have observed Maternal Factors associated were Age more than 31 Yrs. Inadequate IFA Supplementation; H/o Fever with Rash ;H/o TORCH infection-;H/o Exposure to Smoking; Family history ;Consanguineous marriage; The fetal factors associated with the Malformations were Male gender i.e. 63.01% followed by Low birth weight; Twins ; Birth order >4.
