Title: MECONIUM-LIKE SUBSTANCE IN MIDTRIMESTER AMNIOTIC-FLUID - SIGNIFICANCE FOR THE NEUROPSYCHOMOTOR EVOLUTION OF THE INFANT
Author: FRANCHIPINTO, C

Abstract: The state at birth and during the neonatal period, as well as the neuropsychomotor evolution, of 56 children with a normal karyotype, whose midtrimester amniotic fluid had meconium-like substance but a normal alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) level, were compared to those of two groups of infants with a normal karyotype and clear midtrimester amniotic fluid. One of these groups included 85 children born to mothers who had a history of uterine bleeding prior to amniocentesis, while the other was composed of 139 infants whose mothers had no history of bleeding. Among the mothers of the 56 children whose midtrimester amniotic fluid had meconium-like substance, 55% reported uterine bleeding prior to amniocentesis. Meconium-like substance in the midtrimester amniotic fluid has no prognostic value for abnormal neuropsychomotor evolution of the infant, provided that chromosomal aberrations are absent and the AFP level is normal.
