Sudanese standard curves for intrauterine growth

S. E. Mohamed Kheir.

Abstract
Intrauterine growth parameters of birth weight, crown-heel length and head circumference were obtained for six hundred and fifty single newborn Sudanese infants of gestational age of 28-44 weeks. All were born in hospitals in Khartoum to healthy mothers from different social classes
and different ages. The gestational age was calculated depending on the last menstrual period. All mothers included were sure of their dates. Mean birth weight, crown-heel length and head circumference, with standard deviation were obtained for each gestational age where the percentiles could be obtained at term only. At week 40 mean birth weight ( SO) was 3087 439 gm, mean crown-heel length ( SD) was 49.3 2.4 cm and mean head circumference ( SO) was 34.5 1.1 cm while the 50th percentile were 3050 gm, 49.3 cm, and 34 cm for girls and 3050 gm, 49.3 cm and 35 cm for boys respectively. It is suggested that the best curves of birth weight, crown-heel length and head circumference obtained represent the normal growth parameters for Sudanese newborns.
