Amniotic fluid of 262 patients was studied to assess foetal maturity by estimating fat cell percentage and creatinine content. A fat cell count of 25% was noted at 36 weeks and 36% at 40 weeks while creatinine levels of 2.3 mg% were found after 36 weeks of gestation. Methodology, accuracy and usefulness of the various tests used to determine the foetal maturity have been discussed.
