Abstract The incidence of congenital heart defects among children of mothers exposed to antinauseants and maternal and paternal exposure to lead (7439921) (Pb) before and during pregnancy was assessed. Cases of congenital malformations were identified in six counties of the metropolitan Baltimore, Maryland area for 1970 through 1976. Information on parental exposures before and during pregnancy was obtained by mailed questionnaires and telephone follow ups. Additional information was obtained from birth certificates and medical records. The author concludes that paternal as well as maternal occupational exposure may be an important factor in the etiology of congenital heart defects and other malformations.
