AbstractBackground: The amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus serves several roles during pregnancy. Importance as indicator of fetal status is a relatively recent development and has become an integral part of fetal evaluation. Oligohydramnios is diagnosed when ultrasonographically the AFI is ≤5cm/ 5th centile. It affects 3-5% of pregnancies.2 Polyhydramnios is diagnosed when the amniotic fluid index is above 25cm/ 95th percentile. Methods: Pregnant women with abnormal AFI reporting Patna medical college & Hospital, Patna. Study duration of Two years. were included in the clinical study of maternal and fetal outcome. All singleton, non anomalous, low risk pregnancies with AFI ≤ 5cm and ≥25cm with intact membranes and gestational age between 28-42 weeks were included in the study. The AFI was measured using Phelan’s four quadrant technique. An AFI of 524cm is normal. Conclusion: The clinical study was conducted to know the fetomaternal outcome in pregnancies with abnormal liquor volume.The study showed that isolated oligohydramnios and isolated polyhydramnios have no adverse maternal and perinatal outcome.
