The population of infants with intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) is a heterogeneous one; the unifying characteristic of these infants is that they are smaller than expected for their maturity at the time of birth. Their developmental outcome, which describes a spectrum of developmental disabilities, is related to the etiology of the IUGR, timing of the insult, and associated perinatal complications. IUGR is merely a marker that the central nervous system, along with other organ systems, may be affected.
