There are four clinically significant types of anomaly: malformation, disruption, deformation, and dysplasia.

Patient discussion about anomaly

Q. Is it a birth defect in children? I know about the causes of autism. Is it a birth defect in children?

A. it's not an easy answer i'm afraid...there are congenital differences, but no "birth defect" that we can detect. there's a good pdf file that gives a full explanation about it...i think you'll find it useful:

Upper Warm (Cold) Temperature Anomaly. On contrary to the expectations, during intense HREs (Figure 9(a)), we noticed the presence of negative temperature anomalies to the lower levels while the mid- and upper levels are characterized by positive temperature anomalies.
On the basis of these characteristics, we classified the anomaly as a type I FBCA.
The amplitude of an anomaly may be assumed to depend on the mass of the body with altered burned material which, in turn, corresponds to recognizable magnetic contrast from surrounding rocks.
