In a review study, Lundgren and Tuvemo (2008) found that there is cumulative evidence suggesting an association between being born SGA and increased risk of lower intelligence, poor academic performance, low social competence, and behavioral problems compared to individuals born appropriate for gestational age. In another review on perinatal outcomes and later implications of intrauterine growth restriction, Pallotto and Kilbride (2006) reported that behavioral and emotional problems are more frequently found among children who were SGA.
Eighty-four of the babies (68.9%) were appropriate for gestational age (AGA) and 38 (31%) were SGA.
Fifty infants were boys, 20 were low birth weight, 2 were large for gestational age and 79 were appropriate for gestational age. Ninety-seven mothers were medical scheme beneficiaries (86 contracted to AfA).
(5) The triceps and subscapular skinfold measurements at 3 years of age for children born LGA were virtually identical to those of children born appropriate for gestational age, but by 6 years of age, skinfold measurements had diverged considerably, to more than 0.60 standard deviations.
There were no significant differences in length or head circumference gained per week, weight appropriate for gestational age at discharge, or length of stay.
The preterm group included 23 adults who were defined as small for gestational age (less than 1,500 g) and 37 defined as appropriate for gestational age (1,500-2,000 g).
