Abstract: Neural tube defects (NTDs) in Hawaii between 1986 and 1997 were examined using data from a statewide birth defects surveillance system. The prevalence increased significantly over the twelve-year period. NTD prevalence did not appear to vary by place of residence. The relationship of type of defect, maternal age, and infant/fetus sex was similar to that reported in the literature.
