A Congenital Disorder, also known as birth defect, is a condition existing at or before birth regardless of the cause. In some cases, congenital condition can affect a certain body part. However, in many instances, a Congenital Disorder is an inherited condition that affects complete growth and development. Congenital Disorders are typically present at birth, but with the advent of three-dimensional sonograms, they may be detected prior to the birth of the child.
While the baby is still in the womb, they may have problems with their organs and body parts. Such health problems are termed as Birth Defects. There are a number of Congenial Anomalies. The minor ones require no treatment, the more serious cases might cause disabilities and require medical treatment. Once the baby is born, he/she will be examined by the Pediatrician to check for any such disorders. Congenital Disorders Treatment involves medication and Pediatric Surgery to treat the disease at the earliest. In certain cases, if the disease is incurable, the doctor prescribes Physical Therapy to reduce the severity of the disease.
There are more than 10,000 types of Congenital Disorders, ranging from Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, and Spina Bifida to Heart Conditions and others.
