In brief: A long list

congenital diseases exist in basically every organ system in the body.
They can be diagnosed based on appearance starting with blood work in a pregnant mother and ultrasounds of the fetus and then any time after birth. The severity can range from incompatible with life, to severe and life-threatening, and there even are some congenital diseases that aren't diagnosed until adulthood if ever.
