Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The present study establishes normal anthropometric standards for head length and head width in newborn infants born between 27 and 41 gestational weeks. These parameters were measured in 198 term and preterm newborn infants, and their relation to head circumference was determined for each gestational week. The results are presented as growth curves for gestational age.
