Fetal growth restriction is an obstetric condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality. This case describes a case of severe early onset fetal growth restriction, first recognized at a routine anomaly scan and which necessitated early delivery by caesarean section at 29 weeks’ gestation. As the case unfolds, the aetiology of FGR is explored, the principles behind fetal surveillance using ultrasound are explained, and the difficulties in optimizing timing of delivery are discussed. Expert commentary from a neonatologist gives the obstetrician insight into the immediate and longer-term challenges and prognosis of severely growth restricted infants.
