The ABDCCS is the first population-based case-control study to examine the association of maternal cocaine use with congenital urogenital anomalies.
Self-reports of cocaine use underestimate the number of users when compared with urine tests[10]; thus, reliance on self-reports in the ABDCCS may have underestimated the true risk of urogenital anomalies associated with cocaine use.
