According to our research, children born out of wedlock are mostly born with low birth weight (66.7%) (Table 1) and they are schoolgirls, student mothers who had psychological and physical stress during pregnancy as well as who lacked a sufficient and balanced diet, had a high risk of born child with IUGR of hypotrophic type of the 2nd degree (66.7%) (Table 2).
Pregnancy anemia is one of the risk factor for abnormal placental growth, that lead to development of either hypertrophic or hypotrophic placenta [22].
Consequently, diameter decreases without hypertrophy leading to eutrophic or hypotrophic inward remodeling as previously described [50-53].
This may be resulted from a hypotrophic or hypercatabolic state of muscle fibers which maybe a cause or an effect of the denervation of motor units and/or the loss of motor neurons [21].
Cervical cytological study was performed in 163 women (72 with and 91 without UTI) (Table 3) and showed the presence of vaginitis in 11 (12.08%) of 91 women without UTI (candidiasis in four diabetics and bacterial in seven), and in 53 (73.61%) of 72 with UTI (candidiasis in eight, diabetics and bacterial in 45) associated with hypotrophic smears in 100%.

Researchers studied two unrelated individuals with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type VI, which is characterized by congenital hypotonia, lax joints, severe kyphoscoliosis, friable skin and hemorrhagic hypotrophic scars.
The resulting scar is usually flat, smaller than the lesion, has no suture lines, and--if shaved in mid or upper dermis--has a low risk of producing a hypertrophic or hypotrophic scar (strength of recommendation: C, expert opinion, committee guidelines).
Supportive criteria are female sex, irregular breathing, abnormal EEG patterns, hypotonia, scoliosis, hypotrophic feet, growth retardation, and bruxism (Hagberg, Hanefeld, Percy, & Skjeldal, 2002).
There was no evidence of a generalized hypotrophic or hypertrophic cellular response, as soma size of CA1 pyramidal neurons was not affected by PCB exposure at either age (PND22: controls, 190 [[micro]m.sup.2] [+ or -] 7; PCB-treated, 190 [[micro]m.sup.2] [+ or -] 6; PND60: controls, 178 [[micro]m.sup.2] [+ or -] 6; PCB-treated, 174 [[micro]m.sup.2] [+ or -] 8).
Joyce's hypertrophic re-creation and Beckett's hypotrophic de-creation, however, are not necessarily to be conceived in an antithetic relationship, but in an alternate and reversible ambivalence which synthesizes the two opposite concepts.
