What Is Brachial Plexus Palsy?

Brachial plexus palsy is a relatively common birth injury characterized by nerve damage in the arm. It occurs as a result of shoulder dystocia, which is a complication during childbirth occurring when a baby's shoulder is caught on a mother's pubic bone after the head has been delivered. When this happens, a physician such as an obstetrician must act quickly to avoid serious consequences.

The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that controls movement of the shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers. Brachial plexus injuries vary in severity based on the extent of nerve damage. In some cases, a baby's injury may heal on its own within months, while in other cases, babies can suffer from limp or paralyzed arms. Depending on the damage, treatment can range from physical therapy to surgery.

For more serious brachial plexus injuries, such as cases involving nerve ruptures, your infant will need surgery in a timely manner in order to have any chance of avoiding permanent damage. This is why a doctor's correct diagnosis soon after birth is crucial.
