In this article the author discusses the retrospective study made by F. S. Alsubhi and colleagues on the isolated radial nerve palsy in infants. She says that the authors' study help to show in the context of family, pediatricians, and physicians the report showing the condition's relation to long labour and intrauterine pressure. However, she notes that the research has its limitations as it depends on referrals and thus subject to underreporting.
