Abstract

In addition to centile curves for birth weight and height of single infants, the authors offer similar biometric references for twins derived from a large French data base. The aim of the work is to assist in discovering small-for-date twins. In the actual prenatal environment, the curves show a decrease in the evolution of these growth parameters in comparison with the single pregnancy standards as early as the 30th week of pregnancy.
