Abstract

Intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) has always been responsible for much concern as a significant cause of developmental disability. Since intrauterine brain damage may not be clinically evident until late in development, it is therefore crucial to detect, as early as possible, those small for gestational newborns who are at risk and may need special attention. This article (Part I) reviews the definition, incidence, pathogenesis, classification and fetal assessment for IUGR.
