Assessment of intrauterine growth. Relation between length and weight or head circumference in newborn infants. Criterion of anthropometric normality

Assessment of intrauterine growth. Relation between length and weight or head circumference in newborn infants. Criterion of anthropometric normality

Acta Pediatrica Espanola 45(10): 580-583

Length, body weight and head circumference of 9599 infants, male or female, classified as normal and from mothers of different parities, were recorded at birth. For each cm of length from 45 to 57 variability of birthweight and of head circumference was defined by use of percentiles, with values between the 10th and 90th percentiles indicating normality.
