Skeletal Defects

While in the womb, a baby can experience an issue with his or her skeletal development, causing a variety of congenital (present at birth) defects. Two of those, polydactyly (extra digits) and clubfoot are linked to a variety of causes. Luckily, both defects have a fairy high rate of curability and may not leave the baby with any permanent damage.
