This book is an an up-to-date survey and summary of present knowledge and future expectations regarding the environmental causes of congenital malformations in human beings, beginning with the earliest discoveries of the 20th century up to the latest ideas and problems at its end, presents views and comments on the progress made over the century in understanding human prenatal.

Teratology is the study of abnormalities of physiological is often thought of as the study of human congenital abnormalities, but it is broader than that, taking into account other non-birth developmental stages, including puberty; and other organisms, including related term developmental toxicity includes all manifestations of abnormal development that are.

Teratology is the study of birth defects, and its goals are (1) to describe and determine etiology, (2) to explore mechanisms involved in the production of birth defects and (3) to devise means of prevention.

The concept of “birth defects” has evolved beyond the original emphasis on structural congenital malformations.

Keywords: teratology, history, congenital developmental disorders, principles. Introduction. Teratology started as a descriptive science, stemming from a variety of mystical and scientific theories explaining the etiology of congenital malformations, such as maternal impression, the position of the stars, hybridisation, etc.

[Harold Kalter]. Prevention of congenital malformations is recognized as the ultimate goal of teratology, a goal that has not yet been reached despite much progress in the description, experimental production, and treatment of birth defects.

In addition to quests for the causes of congenital malformations and the removal of these causes, indirect preventive. A birth defect, also known as a congenital disorder, is a condition present at birth regardless of its cause.

Birth defects may result in disabilities that may be physical, intellectual, or developmental. The disabilities can range from mild to severe. Birth defects are divided into two main types: structural disorders in which problems are seen with the shape of a body part and functional Specialty: Medical genetics, pediatrics.

An analysis of data from California birth certificates, and from the California Birth Defects Monitoring Program case registry, showed that there is a bias in reporting of congenital malformations.

Teratology, the science of congenital malformations, means different things to different people. It is a descriptive science to some, an explanatory science to others. Natural philosophers, anatomists, pathologists, obstetricians, pediatricians, surgeons, geneticists, epidemiologists, and public health scientists are working on teratologic.

There have been amazing advances in embryology, teratology, reproductive biology, genetics, and epidemiology in the past 50 years that have provided scientists and clinicians with a better perspective on the causes of congenital malformations.

The need to know what causes congenital malformations becomes more imperative as they become the last major holdout, the most unyielding of all the reasons babies still die and are seriously ill.

Serious congenital malformations are a major contributor to the infant death rate worldwide. Their nonhereditary causes are multiple and complex, and include infectious and metabolic dangers, disease medication, nutritional inadequacy, medicinal products, environmental agents and pollutants, among them.
