The aim of the study was to review the recent trends in the incidence, risk factors, pattern, diagnosis and management of various congenital anomalies in our population. This cross-sectional, observational study included sixty pregnant women aged 20-35 years. Mode of delivery was decided after considering all these aspects. Total eight (13.3%) fetuses had congenital malformations. The follow-up of these ladies revealed that 26 (43.3%) were lost on follow-up, so the incidence of congenital malformations at birth was found to be 5.8%.
