World Pediatrics 2019: Percentile growth charts for symmetric & asymmetric small for gestational age infants - Harvinder Kaur - Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education & Research

Introduction: The pathogenesis of the pediatric disorder periodic fever, Age and sex specific percentile growth charts for body weight and crown-heel length (CHL) of full-term 100 symmetric small for gestational age (SGA) (boys: 50, girls: 50), 100 asymmetric SGA (boys: 50, girls: 50) and 100 appropriate for gestational age (AGA) (boys: 50, girls: 50) infants representing upper socioeconomic strata have been presented. Ponderal Index (PI) was used to categorize SGA babies into symmetric SGA (PI ≥ 2.2 g/cm3) and asymmetric SGA (PI < 2.2 g/cm3). Body weight and CHL of the babies were measured at birth, 1, 3, 6, 9 & 12 months of age in the Growth Laboratory/Clinic of Advanced Pediatrics Centre, PGIMER, Chandigarh, India using standardized techniques and instruments following a mixed-longitudinal growth research design.
