A simple method of assessment of gestational age based on only four characteristics, namely, the anterior vascular capsule of the lens, plantar creases, breast nodule, and ear firmness, is presented. Critical evaluation by appropriate statistical analyses has shown this to be a useful method of practical value with 95% confidence limits of 11 days. It is applicable to newborn infants, including sick babies, at any time within the first 2 days of life.
