A follow up study of 67 prematures born with a low birthweight (1250 g or less) was made since July 1962 at the Premature Department and Aftercare Clinic of the Medical School in Warsaw. The study consisted of physical, psychological and anthropometrical examinations. Results revealed a high percentage of children with developmental disturbances such as brain damage, behavioural and visuo-motor disturbances. No evident, statistically significant interrelation between these disturbances and the course of the neonatal period could be found. The interrelation was more evident between these disturbances and the course of pregnancy. Haemorrhage in the first half of pregnancy seemed to be a most serious complication. It is difficult to predict the chances of a normal psychophysical development of the smallest prematures. Such prognosis depends on many different and complicated factors.
