Summary of "Sociodemographic, health behavioral, and clinical risk factors for anotia/microtia in a population-based case-control study."

Anotia and microtia are congenital malformations of the external ear with few known risk factors. We conducted a comprehensive assessment of a wide range of potential risk factors using data from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS), a population-based case-control study of non-chromosomal structural birth defects in the United States.
