ABSTRACT
The article discusses an Illinois medical court case in 1994 in which a woman delivered an infant suffering from C-8 brachial plexus palsy and deformity of right arm and hand, filed a lawsuit against the obstetrician for excessive application of traction to the infant's head and neck during delivery, but was overturned by the defense's claim of appropriate maneuvers used in the delivery.
