1. Increased human placental growth hormone at midtrimester pregnancies may be an index of intrauterine growth retardation related to preeclampsia.
Match Strength: 9.960
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relationship between maternal serum and amniotic fluid levels of human Placental Growth Hormone (hPGH) with the fetal intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) related to preeclampsia. DESIGN: We analyzed samples in pairs of serum and amniotic fluid retrospectively from 25 women, who manifested preeclampsia and IUGR in the late second or the third trimester of gestation. The samples were obtained at 16-22 weeks' gestation during amniocentesis for fetal karyotyping. At this time, there was no clinical or sonographic evidence of preeclampsia or IUGR, respectively. Sixty ... Read More »

2. Neu-Laxova syndrome: a case report and review of the literature.
Match Strength: 8.257
Neu-Laxova syndrome (NLS) is a rare autosomal recessive syndrome, characterized by severe intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), microcephaly, abnormal brain development, oedema and ichthyosis. It was first reported in 1971 by Neu et al. (Pediatrics 47: 610-612) and since then no more than 60 cases have been reported. A newborn girl delivered from a 29-year-old healthy mother was admitted to hospital with a thick membrane covering her body and dismorphic appearance. The diagnosis of NLS was made according to characteristic features. The syndrome is known to have a poor prognosis and the baby ... Read More »

3. Long-term outcome of infants with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
Match Strength: 7.600
OBJECTIVE: To clarify the long-term neurodevelopmental outcome of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) survivors. METHODS: From January 1994 to December 2003, 33 newborns with TTTS who were derived from 18 monochorionic twin gestations were enrolled for the study. The development and growth at 3 or 6 years of age were compared between TTTS survivors and weight-matched singleton controls. RESULTS: The mortality in TTTS (8/33: 24%) was significantly higher than that of the controls (7/80: 9%). Of all 12 TTTS patients who were diagnosed before 25 weeks and born before 28 weeks of gestation, ... Read More »
