Low birth weight intrauterine growth retardation and preterm delivery



Low birth weight intrauterine growth retardation and preterm delivery



American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology 152(8): 980-984



The relatonship between low birth weight, intrauterine growth retardation and preterm delivery in infants born at a perinatal center is described. Between 20% and 30% of infants born weighing 500-2000 gm and nearly 50% of infants born weighing 2001 to 2750 gm had intrauterine growth retardation. For infants within the same low-birth weight group, infants with intrauterine growth retardation had on half to one sixth of the neonatal mortality rate of non-growth-retarded infants. Only in the 501-1000 gm group did the difference in mortality between infants with and without intrauterine growth retardation substantially influence the composition of the group of survivors.
