Epidemiologic data addressing maternal risk factors for congenital urinary tract anomalies (CUTA) are limited, with conflicting results for preexisting diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes, and tobacco and alcohol use. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between maternal risk factors and CUTA in a population-based case-control study.
