PMID:  11269817     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A fracture dislocation of the upper thoracic spine with spinal cord injury is reported in a neonate. This rare injury is associated with attendant predisposing obstetric circumstances (breech transverse presentations, large baby size) that can alert clinicians of potential problems and aid in the diagnosis of neonatal hypotonia and paralysis.
