Abstract

Intrauterine growth restriction is associated with increased perinatal morbidity and mortality, as well as certain metabolic diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and hypertension in adult life. In this report, the authors describe a case of successful neonatal resuscitation after caesarean delivery in a severe growth-restricted fetus with absent cardiac activity following prolonged intrauterine bradycardia. The neonatal outcome was favourable, with the infant showing only unilateral hearing loss at 13 months' follow-up.
