In addition to the series of congenital defects already identified in the perinate B418, other congenital anomalies included a possible cervical rib (B163,16 years), a possible cleft atlas (B42, 8 years), a reduced and narrow auditory meatus that may indicate the child was deaf or had defective hearing in one ear (B74, c.6 years), and cleft neural arches of the fifth lumbar vertebrae (B332, and B323 both c.10 years).

Subsequent to the third stripping or "sweeping," the mother and perinate suffered GBS sepsis.
These susceptibility-defining factors include a) numbers of target cells at risk, b) sensitivity to cell killing, c) effects of rate of cell division ..., d) ability to repair DNA damage, e) expansion of clones of mutated cells ..., f) presence of undifferentiated stem cells, g) development of differentiated characteristics, including ability to carry out metabolic activation, h) metabolic detoxification by placenta and/or maternal tissues, and i) metabolic detoxification by the perinate itself....
ID faces the dilemma that among the cases so diagnosed, causes can be identified only in 25%.7 These can be attributed to autosomal recessive chromosomal disorders.8 Genetic, acquired, socio-demographic and cultural factors are also highly associated with ID.9 Consanguinity is associated predominantly with undiagnosed cases.10 Prenatal, perinatal causes in mothers and perinates like low birth weight (LBW), asphyxia, delayed cry, anoxia, trauma and kernicterus at the time of birth and postnatal causes in infants have a considerable share as well.10 Early initiation, exclusivity and duration of breastfeeding have an impeccable impact on the IQ scores and academic performance of children.11
This was a cadaver dissection based study where perinates and adult cadavers were dissected to observe the arterial dominance.

Thus, all strandings <125 cm were categorized as perinates, although we recognize that this category could comprise most or all of the neonates, as well as some specimens up to 3 months of age (Fernandez and Hohn, 1998).
The average length of the coastal bottlenose dolphins classified as perinates (n=179) was 105.8 cm (standard deviation [SD]=9.6).
Even more exciting is the discovery of burials of six perinates within the grounds of the second (1792-1818) and third (1818-1844) convict hospitals in Parramatta (Casey & Lowe 2009a).
