Demographic information and probable risk factors were recorded in the checklist through the patient's file and interviews with parents.
Results: The most common anomalies were cardiac disorders (31.1%), cerebral palsy (18.3%) and Down syndrome (14.9%). The body weight, length and head circumference at birth, mean father's and mother's age at the time of pregnancy , Father's and  mother's ethnicity, economic status , education, type of delivery, birth season, maternal body mass index during pregnancy, maternal diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, hypertension  and infectious disease during pregnancy, parental addiction, parents' smoking, folic acid and iron intake during pregnancy, drug use during pregnancy ,hypoxia, consanguinity and family history of congenital anomaly were significantly different in two groups (p <0.05). Based on the results of logistic regression Type of delivery (caesarean section) , low socioeconomic status, father’s age, family history of congenital anomalies, father’s smoking and infant hypoxia had a significant correlation with the congenital anomalies.
