  Background & Aims : Since the widespread application of the ICSI technique has raised concerns about the efficacy and safty of this technique. This supports the need to advise these couples properly and to continue follow – up of the newborns to facilitate accurate evaluation of the risks after ICSI. Epidemiologic studies have established associations between intrauterine and extrauterine growth restriction and the risk of development of health problems in later life, for example, cardiovascular disease.

  The aim of our study was to compare birth weight , height and head circumference in the ICSI term singleton with these of term. In addition we investigated whether are difference within these groups for sex (male , female).

  Materials & Methods : The study included 81 ICSI and 110 naturally conceived term singleton (gestational age of ≥ 37 weeks). Information on pregnancy outcome was retrieved from medical records.

  Results : Our study shows that term ICSI singletons had not significantly difference birth weight, height and head circumference from a national reference group. In addition we shows that there are not differences within these groups for sex(male , female).

  Conclusion : No differences in birth weight, height and head circumference between the children. Conceived with ICSI and those Conceived naturally. Children sex was higher female in the children conceived with ICSI.
