A non-concurrent matched cohort study (1x1) on the repercussion of maternal malnutrition due to faulty feeding on pregnancy, delivery and the newborn was conducted at the "Tula Aguilera" Teaching Community Polyclinic, in the municipality of Camagüey from October 1, 1993 to April 30, 1995. The working universe consisted of 100 malnourished pregnant women due to faulty feeding that were compared with a control group. The prenatal control card, the medical history and delivery registries of the polyclinic and of the Provincial Gynecoobstetrics Hospital were the primary source of data. According to the criteria of experts, it was created a survey that became the definitive primary registry of data. The main conclusions of the research were as follows: maternal age with a relative risk (RR) of 2.392, the family percapita with a RR of 2.993, the diseases associated with or depending on pregnancy, such as bronchial asthma with a RR of 8.609; urinary sepsis with a RR of 5. 950, anemia with a RR of 3.47, and low birth weigth with a RR of 3.13.
