Hanadi Salah Mahfod, Manal Mohamed El Behery, Mai Mostafa Zaitoun, HalaSherif El-sayed


Background:Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is a major problem in midwifery medicine for which no effective treatment has been established. This problem has been associated with significant morbidity and mortality, as well as perinatal mortality. IUGR could be prevented when the treatment is administered before the occurrence of irreversible changes. Hence appropriate methods for early detection and successful treatment deem necessary. Aim of work: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship of vitamin D serum level with IUGR in pregnant women. Conclusions: Serum levels of vitamin D can affect the risk of IUGR; therefore, the incidence of IUGR in babies whose mothers have enough vitamin D level during pregnancy is lower than that in other babies
