Ischemia of a limb occurring in the first week of life is uncommon. Gangrene presenting at birth in the upper extremity is fortunately rare. The result in this case and a review of the literature of the last 40 years shows that prompt recognition, early arteriography, and aggressive surgical treatment are necessary.
