Best Answer

Congenital disorders are present at or shortly after birth and are typically present throughout life until death. Some congenital abnormalities (such as a heart defect) are treatable or repaired in infancy or young childhood.

Acquired disorders develop during a person's lifetime, anytime from birth to old age. Almost every adult by old age has at least one acquired disorder and most adults develop more than one disorder.
