Methods: A prospective case control study conducted at Ibrahim Malik Teaching Hospital during the period from April 2017 to December 2017. The study sample was 247 pregnant women diagnosed with oligohydramnios as case and 247 healthy pregnancies as control. Results: The commonly reported risk factors among 247 pregnant women with oligohydramnios at 3rd trimester were; idiopathic disorder 149(60.3%), preeclampsia & hypertension 82 (13.8%), diabetes mellitus 13(5.3%) and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome 3 (1.2%). operative delivery was very high in the case group; 76 versus 34 OR 2.7843, cesarean sections were due to pathological CTG 66 versus 26 OR 2.0308. Most of the babies in the case group admitted to NICU; 181 versus 17 OR 37. 1034.
