Gangrene of the extremities in the newborn is extremely rare at birth. Less than 100 cases have been reported worldwide. Its etiology is obscure in many cases; however, some factors have been associated with it in the newborn, which include vascular injury and embolism. We report a case of a baby with congenital bilateral lower limb gangrene caused by thromboembolic phenomenon from retroplacental hematoma following abruptio placentae and highlight the challenges of managing such condition in resource-poor setting.
