Abstract

In the management ofd pregnancies with small for gestational age (SGA) fetuses, the aim is to distinguish between normal small babies, not at risk of perinatal death or chronic handicap, and fetuses whose growth is retarded due to either placental insufficiency with malnutrition and hypoxia, or intrinsic fetal pathology like chromosomal abnormalities, or hereditary malformations.
