The relation of birth weight and gestational age in a group of infants in Jutland with special reference to diagnosing infants with intrauterine growth retardation



The relation of birth weight and gestational age in a group of infants in Jutland with special reference to diagnosing infants with intrauterine growth retardation



Ugeskrift for Laeger 151(42): 2721-2724



The relationship between birthweight (BW) and gestational age (GA) in 14,276 Danish children with GA of 35 to 42 completed weeks was illustrated employing 10%, 50% and 90% percentile curves. The curves were sex-specific. The number of light for dates (LFD) children defined by means of the 10% percentile (BW below 10th percentile) was 1,351 compared to 848 children when using the curve currently employed. The latter curve was based upon foreign children and moreover was not sex-specific. It is concluded that sex-specific and updated curves representing the population studied are mandatory in the diagnosis of LFD-children.
