Objective. The research objective is to determine complement diagnostic criteria of an intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) using the data of anthropometric measures. Methods. It was conducted ultrasound fetometry in 131 pregnant women with detected IUGR. The control group includes similar measures of 101 women with physiological gestation course.  Results. In fetus with IUGR it was detected a fetometric gap except for some measures that differ depending on pathology and gestational age. At a dissymmetric IUGR the size of a fetal head and a femur length decreased, it was registered a significant narrowing of abdominal circumference. At a symmetric IUGR all measures fell off. Conclusions. The phase of cellular hyperplasia cells, which occurs before 32 weeks of gestation, when the pathological effects develops proportional to the reduction of cellular structure that characterizes the symmetrical form of IUGR, and formed an asymmetric form of pathology with a predominance of the processes of hypertrophy of the cells (after 32 weeks ), characterized by, first of all, the size mismatch of the abdominal cavity.
