Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is a disorder in which a baby's weight is below the 10th percentile for babies of the same gestational age and sex.
Intrauterine growth restriction can be caused by problems with the placenta, the baby's genes, or mother's health issues. Intrauterine growth restriction babies are at risk for many health problems, including low birth weight, premature birth, and death.
