Multiple abnormalities (multiple anomaly, multiple deformity) is a term used to describe congenital abnormality that can not be primarily identified with a single system of the body or single disease process.

Although most medical conditions can have systemic sequelae, the term is generally reserved where the effects on multiple systems is immediately obvious.
