What causes certain mutagens to be teratogenic?

There may also be some mutagens that don't act as teratogens because their mutagenic effects are very local and may not be easily passed to a fetus. For example, UV radiation is mutagenic but not teratogenic.
True, though UV could be teratogenic it is highly unlikely (I'm struggling to think of any reasonable situation where a UV torch would get anywhere near a uterus).
