Every year, half a million babies are born with malformations, one-third of these life-threatening. The present study aims at analysing trends of perinatal mortality (PM) due to major congenital malformations (MCM) at a rural institute, for preventive possibilities. Records of all perinatal deaths due to MCM over 24 years were analysed. Perinatal deaths (PD) due to MCM were 346; overall 8.3% of PD (287 (82.94%) stillbirths; 59 (17.06%) neonatal deaths). There was a decreasing trend of contribution of MCM to PM: 9.52% in Block A to 6.95% in Block H; 26.87% of PD were due to nervous system anomalies: 3.76% in Block A to 2.02% in Block H. PM due to congenital heart disease increased from 0.87% in Block A to 6.94% in Block H. It is essential that a system exists to diagnose MCM at a gestation when abortion is possible. Research for prevention of anomalies needs to be continued.
