Introduction - Oligohydramnios or a reduced volume of amniotic fluid poses a challenge in
 obstetric management, particularly when it is diagnosed before term. It is one of the major
 causes for antenatal fetal surveillance and induction of labor. The incidence of
 oligohydramnios in the literature varies from less than 0.5%1 to above 5%, depending on the
study population and definition of oligohydramnios. Oligohydramnios, often due to impaired
 placental function, has been associated with an increased risk of caesarean delivery for fetal
 distress, as well as low Apgar score, postmaturity, meconium aspiration syndrome and
 perinatal mortality and morbidity.
