    Congenital central nervous system (CNS) malformations are the cause of CDI in approximately 5% of unselected children with CDI. 48,51 There are a variety of congenital malformations which can result in CDI (Table ), the most important of which involve midline defects and, in particular, septo-optic dysplasia.

Rubella is an acute viral disease that is transmitted by airborne droplets and carries a potential threat to the fetus in the early stages due to the development of congenital malformations. The virus can provoke the development of pneumonia in a child, if the mother is infected before the very birth.

Congenital malformations account for one of the major causes of perinatal mortality and morbidity. The major causes of congenital malformation are chromosomal abnormalities, mutant genes, multifactorial disorders, and teratogenic agents.

The leading sites of congenital abnormalities are the skeleton, skin, and brain. viral infections, etc., can occur throughout pregnancy. The timing of exposure is critical for both, malformations. Lymphatic malformations or lymphangiomas are benign (non-cancerous) vascular lesions made of fluid-filled spaces (cysts) thought to occur due to abnormal development of the lymphatic system.

In general, lymphatic malformations are categorized into macrocystic, microcystic, or combined depending on the size of the cysts; they are also classified in superficial lesions known as. Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common congenital birth defect. CHD accounted for nearly one third of all birth defects, and the prevalence rate reached to 8 to 12 per live births worldwide.

Congenital hydrocephalus is when a child is born with an excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain.

CSF is a clear fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. This excess fluid causes an abnormal widening of spaces in the brain called ventricles (ventriculomegalia) and can create a harmful pressure on brain tissue. Symptoms of hydrocephalus vary and may include. In some congenital ectodermal dysplasias, patients have no nails (anonychia).

In pachyonychia congenita, the nail beds are thickened, discolored, and transversely hypercurved (pincer nail deformity). Nail-patella syndrome causes triangular lunulae and partially absent thumb nails. Patients with Darier disease can have nails with red and white.
