Abstract

Children born small for gestational age are a non-homogeneous group and etiology and diagnostic needs vary among subgroups. In view of the knowledge accumulated about immediate-and future risk factors for these children it is important to study the etiology and to invest in long-term prevention programs. The aim of this report is to summarize the current knowledge on mechanisms leading to intrauterine growth retardation and to review the intervention procedures.
