Health officials baffled over increasing number of babies born with anencephaly

Health officials in Washington are trying to figure out what has been the cause of an increasing number of babies born with neural tube defects, like anencephaly and spina bifida, CNN reported on March 1.

According to reports, epidemiologists who looked into the medical records of three county hospitals found that from January 2010 to January 2013 at least 23 babies were born with anencephaly, a birth defect in which parts of the brain and skull are missing. This is four times that of the national average.

However, medical experts in the state are having a hard time investigating the cause of these birth defects due to a lack of and inconsistent information from pregnant mothers.

Unfortunately, neural birth defects like anencephaly have also been linked to pregnant mothers using Depakote. If you think your baby has suffered a serious birth defect as a result of Depakote use, the lawyers at Williams Hart can help you explore your options for holding the manufacturer responsible.
