What Causes Erb’s Palsy?

Erb's palsy is characterized by loss of function of the arm or shoulder. In most cases, the loss of function is partial, but in some it is total.

Conditions in which brachial plexus injuries and Erb's palsy are more likely to occur include births involving large babies (more than eight pounds), prolonged labor and mothers with abnormally small pelvises. If the baby’s arm and neck are stretched away from each other, either because it is stuck in the birth canal or because a doctor’s intervention is too forceful, the nerves that control the arm may be stretched or even torn.
