A randomly selected sample of 252 infants aged 5--18 months was evaluated through medical and developmental examinations. Developmental achievement scores and factors such as management of delivery and fetal distress were studied in relation to Apgar scores. Low-Apgar-score infants aged 5--8 months achieved consistently lower scores on all developmental fields. High-Apgar-score infants at younger and older ages did not differ on their achievement scores. Low Apgar score was much more frequent in infants delivered by vacuum extraction than in those delivered spontaneously, with forceps or by cesarian section. The frequency of low Apgar score was higher when fetal distress occurred.
