Congenital malformations in the progenies of Iranian chemical victims

Vet Hum Toxicol. 1994 Dec;36(6):562-3.

Abstract

The incidence of congenital malformations among the progenies of the Iranian chemical victims were studied. A higher incidence of abnormalities were found among survivors' offspring of Iranian gas victims. Parental exposure to chemical weapons may be associated with an increased risk for some congenital malformations.
