This study was performed to prove the significance of the oligohydramnios in the intrauterine growth restriction. METHODS: Eighty two patients were identified to have intrauterine growth restriction with oligohydramnios (Group of IUGR+Oligihydramnios) and fifty six patients were identified to have intrauterine growth restriction without oligohydramnios (Group of IUGR) on ultrasound examination from January 1st, 2005 to December 31st, 2007 at St. Vincent Hospital of Catholic University of Korea. Perinatal outcomes were compared between two groups. RESULTS: Statistically significant differences were not shown between two groups in the maternal characteristics and fetal clinical features except amniotic fluid index and the duration between diagnosis and delivery. The incidence of hyperbilirubinemia and complications in the urogenital system were significantly increased in the group of IUGR+ Oligihydramnios. The other complications were not shown significant difference between two groups. CONCLUSION: Oligohydramnios may not seem to be significant predictor of adverse neonatal outcome of IUGR except the development of hyperbilirubinemia and urogenital complications.
Key Words: IUGR, Oligohydramnios, Perinatal outcomes
