This volume, The Low Birth Weight Baby, is a timely update of progress in a field that has tended to be neglected in recent years. Although we are yet to discover a method to precisely predict the occurrence of preterm labour, there have been spectacular improvements in the prospects for survival of low birthweight infants. The use of antepartum steroids and advances in neonatal intensive care have brought about these changes. This volume covers these and other improvements as a result of which the reader of this volume will be left with the comfortable feeling that he or she knows everything worth knowing about the subject. The contributors are veterans in the field who have a broad perspective of their subject and are not tempted to embrace the newest unconfirmed theory.
