A population based Congenital Malformations Registry has been established in the Emilia Romagna region of northern Italy. From the 1st of January 1978 to the end of 1984, 103,484 births were monitored, and 1914 babies with one or more congenital abnormalities were registered producing a rate of 1.85 per cent. The total number of malformations registered was 2,412 (2.3%). The rates of selected groups of malformations (isolated and in association with other defects) are presented and compared with rates derived from the EUROCAT study.
