Subjects and Methods: This prospective study was performed with association of paediatric group, over a year from 2006 to 2007. All live births with a gestationl age of 28-42 weeks were evaluated for congenital abnormalities of the upper and lower limbs.
Results: A total of 5087 live births were delivered by vaginal and cesarean section. Thirty newborns had abnormality in upper or lower extremities (5.89/1000 live births). Among of these newborns, congenital clubfoot in 12 (M=7, F=5) newborn, hip dysplasia in 10 (F=8 , M=2), hand polydactyly in 3 (F=1, M=2), metatarsus adductus in 2 female, bilateral hand and foot in 1 female, polydactyly in 1 female, hand syndactyly in 1 male and vertical talus in 1 male were observed.
