Prematurity is shown to be associated with increased incidence of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, mental retardation, epilepsy, poor school performance and visual field defects.

This study includes 100 patients of preterm labour between 24 weeks and 37 weeks completed with or without rupture of membrane. Results: The commonest causes of prematurity in present series are PROM, PIH, pre eclampsia, eclampsia, severe anemia, vaginal infection, febrile illnesses, accidental hemorrhage, multiple pregnancies.97 Babies had NICU admission out of 108 babies delivered preterm out of which majority of babies admitted to NICU for the indication of prematurity.
