Congenital Disorders

What are congenital disorders?
The World Health Organization (WHO) describes a congenital disorder (CD) or birth defect as an abnormality in the structure or function of a person, which is present from birth. Although CDs are present from birth, only some are obvious and can be detected when a baby is born. Others may only manifest later in childhood, adolescence or later in life.
