Five-minute Apgar score ≤ 5 and molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH) - a case control study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-22)

The asymmetric distribution of MIH in the dentition may indicate that an insult of short duration that affects ameloblasts at a vulnerable stage could be a causative factor. Apgar ≤ 5 at 5 min may indicate asphyxia (hypoxic-ischemic insult) during birth. It was hypnotised that low Apgar score during birth may cause MIH. ...
