News - French Ain babies missing limb births prompt national inquiry
French regions - Ain, Brittany and Loire-Atlantique

France has launched a national investigation into the number of babies being born with limb agenesis (entire missing upper limbs, missing forearms and hands, or fingers) just weeks after an initial inquiry closed. The cases were clustered in the Ain, Brittany and Loire-Atlantique regions. The cause is still unknown, but may relate to local developmental environmental abnormalies.
