The results obtained were as follows; 1) Incidence of low birth weights was 4.4% and average sex ratio was 1. 24 : 1, of which twin births were 78 cases(15.6%), prematures were 257 cases(64.6%), SGA were 107 cases (24.1%) (Flg. 1). 2) Maternal predisposing factor:s of low birth weight infants were in order hypertension. toxemia. twin births(Table 3). 3) Placental predisposing factors of low birth weights were in order of SPRM. abruptio placenta. placenta previa. 4) Fetal predisposing factors of low birth weight infants were in order of congenital ano. maly. congenital infection. chromosomal anomaly. 5) Total vaginal delivery were 327 cases(82.8%), and CjS delivery were 71 cases(l7.8%) (Table 7). Abnormal presentation such as breech presentation were more common in LBWI than that of total live births. 6) LBWI were more prevalent among mothers who were under 20 year old or over 36 year old(τable 11). 7) The mortality rate of LBWI was 7.0% without sexual predominance and inversely to gestational age and birth weight. Most of death occured within 6 hrs of delivery. The mortality rate was most prevalent among the mothers who were under 20 year old or 32 weeks of gestational age.
