Zinc deficiency in neonates has been suggested to be related to poor growth,
hyperbilirubinemia, seizures, necrotizing enterocolitis, retinopathy of prematurity and
bronchopulmonary dysplasia by some investigators. The aim of this research was to
determine the association between cord serum zinc and some obstetric factors. There
was no significant association between some obstetric factors such as parity, maternal
age, mode of delivery, antenatal visits and gestational age and cord blood serum zinc.
The index study found that maternal parity had no statistically significant relationship
with cord blood serum zinc.
