Congenital disorder

A congenital disorder, also known as a congenital disease, deformity, birth defect, or anomaly,[1] is a condition existing at or before birth regardless of cause. Of these disorders, those characterized by structural deformities are termed "congenital anomalies" and involve defects in a developing fetus. Birth defects vary widely in cause and symptoms. Any substance that causes birth defects is known as a teratogen. Some disorders can be detected before birth through prenatal diagnosis (screening).

Birth Defects

Common Birth Defects

Cleft lip and/or palate happens when the tissues of the mouth or lip don't form properly during fetal development, leaving an opening, division, or split in that area. This is called "clefting." A cleft lip is a long opening between the upper lip and the nose. A cleft palate is an opening between the roof of the mouth and the nasal cavity. In the United States, oral clefting happens in 1 in 700 to 1,000 births, making it one of the most common major birth defects. Clefting can be surgically repaired after birth.
