Good afternoon,

1 Answer:

Hello Ricalavenia, Thank you for the question.


Crooked wrists at birth can be caused by:

abnormal bone growth when the fetus is in the womb

Erb's palsy, which is a condition caused by injury to the nerves in the upper arm of the baby (called the brachial plexus) that results from a difficult delivery. This condition causes an abnormal position of the shoulders and wrists

Klumpke palsy, which is the same condition as Erb's palsy but the affected nerves are different
Muscle atrophy

To find out whether this condition can be cured or not and what is the best treatment, you must first know the cause. Please advise your brother / sister to bring your nephew to the pediatrician first. The doctor will ask about this complaint and a history of pregnancy and childbirth. The doctor will then examine your nephew to determine the next treatment. The treatment given by the doctor is not necessarily in the form of surgery, depending on the medical condition that underlies this complaint.


Hope this information is helpful.


Dr. Aloisia
