    Abstract

    Statistical tables including 50 and 95 percentile ranges are presented of the combined kidney weights compared with body weight, crown-rump length, and gestation age of foetuses and newborn children, and also a table of kidney weights related to post-natal age. The importance of relating kidney weight to more than one general body criterion in the perinatal period is illustrated.
