We have presented here are a long list of conditions associated with an increased incidence of fetal growth restriction. Missing from much of the literature on FGR are data that would allow more informed counseling of patients in terms of predicting their risk of carrying a pregnancy complicated by FGR. For example, very little has been published on the chances of having an infant with FGR in a woman suffering from SLE or chronic hypertension. Future studies of FGR should address these issues so that clinicians may counsel their patients properly.
