    Hi All,

    Please suggest me the ICD for "premature growth".There is skeletal maturation that is advanced between two to three standard deviations. Doing bone age studies.

    thanks in advance,

    I think, with three standard deviations the fetus cannot grow-
    Upto 2 standard deviations,may be under 2,500 grams growth weight, can go for 764.90-
