Background: Differentiation between normal and pathological fetal growth may be difficult and a regular fetal biometry is required, with ultra- sound examination of the placenta, amniotic fluid index assessment and Doppler velocimetry of pregnancies with fetal growth disorders, even in the absence of a clear etiologic factor.
