Abstract: Background and Objective. Recent epidemiological studies, conducted in various countries, have reported different level relationships between elevate levels of traffic-related air pollutants and birth outcomes. We studied long-term maternal exposure to NO2 effect on low birth weight (21μg/m3. The relationship between NO2 levels and LBW risk was estimated by multivariate logistic regression. After adjustment for gestational age, smoking, family status and education, in moderate exposure zone adjusted odds ratio for LBW was 1.28; 95% CI 0.35-4.64 and in high exposure zone it was 2.48; 95% CI 0.68-9.11. Conclusion. The present study suggests that there might be a relationship between prenatal exposure to relatively low-levels of NO2 and the risk of LBW
