Fundal heights were measured on 761 women in the course of their routine antenatal care. This information was assessed, alone and in combination with other variables such as previous obstetric history and smoking, for its utility in predicting growth retardation. The results were disappointing. By most criteria used for classification, approximately half of(More)
Dengue fever (DF) remains one of the most important emerging infectious diseases. Whereas DF is well recognized in endemic countries, there are indications that the disease is underdiagnosed among travellers to endemic regions. Here, we present the first descriptive survey on cases of travel-acquired DF imported to Denmark diagnosed at the national(More)
Data from the Glasgow Register of Congenital Malformations were used to investigate the extent of the recent decline in the prevalence of anencephaly and spina bifida, and the contribution of antenatal screening to it. Over the period 1974-85 inclusive, 303 pregnancies with an anencephalic foetus were diagnosed, representing an "adjusted" prevalence of 1.9(More)
Examination of data from the Glasgow Registry of Congenital Anomalies indicated that 184 infants with Down's syndrome were born (live or still) to mothers residing in the Greater Glasgow Health Board area between 1974 and 1986 inclusive. This represents a period prevalence of 1.1 per 1000 total births. Despite a strongly positive correlation between(More)
A retrospective analysis of the antenatal management of 226 cases of growth retardation was carried out. One-hundred-and-fourteen cases (50%) were not suspected antenatally. Of the 112 suspected cases, 107 were subjected to further tests of fetal well-being. Eighty-one (72%) of the 112 received no further action or surveillance because of erroneously(More)
Teenage pregnancy, considered to be associated with social and medical risks, is seen as a growing problem. Population based information from the Registrar General (Scotland) and Notification of Abortion permitted an analysis of the trends in the numbers, rates and outcomes of pregnancies among women aged less than 20 years. In addition, clinical(More)
