Definition:

Size for gestational age is a measure of fetal growth, where small-for-gestational-age is considered an indicator of fetal growth restriction and a marker for increased fetal and infant mortality and morbidity risk, and large-for-gestational-age is considered an indicator of accelerated fetal growth and a marker for increased risk of birth complications and infant morbidity (Health Canada, 2000, 2003).
