Abstract

Objectives: The aim of the study was to analyze the origin of birth defects in pregnant women from the Kujawy-Pomerania Region, and to identify factors affecting the formation of developmental disorders in the Province.

Material and methods: The correlation between maternal age and fetal defects was investigated. We also attempted to determine whether environmental or family factors play a role in the formation of fetal abnormalities.

Results: The analysis confirmed a correlation between the incidence of chromosomal aberrations and maternal age.

Conclusions: Higher rates of neural tube defects were observed in fetuses born to mothers who did not take folic acid. The influence of other factors on developmental anomalies was not confirmed.
