The HSA4 form allows the recording of all medical conditions and other details associated with the ground, such as the method used to make the diagnosis. In previous years, only the principal medical condition was published. Table 18.2 shows totals for the number of mentions of a medical condition in 2012. For example, congenital malformations were mentioned 1,676 times within the 2,692 Ground E cases, although they were cited as the principal condition in 1,197 cases[23].
