The importance of clinical follow-up of the growth in size of the uterus in the screening of intrauterine underdevelopment of the fetus and also other ovulatory anomalies has been stressed by the authors, and the acceptable standards for uterine heighth and umbilical circumference at the various stages of pregnancy have been assessed. Reference curves establishing the limits that correspond to 10th and 90th percentiles have been determined. An individual diagram that would permit to visualize successive measurements in any pregnant woman has been proposed. The authors have recommanded the use of an index of uterine development the abnormal values of which should be included in the evaluation of risk.
