[Evidence-based Practice Session Presentation] Purpose: The W.H.O (2004) has shown that the incidences of low birth weight (LBW) in Latina America vary from 5% (Chile) to 21% (Haiti). While in the industrialized countries the LBW epidemiology has been extensively studied, in the developing countries this data is yet to be fully approached (UNICEF 2004). Objectives: to describe the influences of maternal non pathological factors on LBW in Latin America. Methods: Systematic Literature Review through cohort studies, control cases and cross-sectional studies. The LBW was the primal moment of the study, and the mother's age, pregnancy period, socio economic stand, educational level, pre natal consultations, parity, weight and her height at the beginning of pregnancy were all considered as the second moment of the study. The data was obtained by an electronic research of thesis abstracts published on CAPES, Scielo, Lilacs and Pub Med databases, considering the key-words above described. Results: 17 elected studies, 5 excluded due to methodological inconsistency (STROBE criteria) and 5 for being inconclusive. Conclusion: Main factors associated with to LBW were mother's age between 10 and 20 and above 35 years old, less than 6 prenatal consultations, less than 8 years of scholarly education, prematurity and maternal weight of 50 Kg (110 lbs).
