Rule out Erb palsy.#clavicle. UC Hemorrhage.

Posture looks like Erbs palsy only. Look for reflexes to suggest lower motor neuron leison. Many time pediatrician miss lower limb weakness associated with UMN signs. Better to get x-ray for shoulder to rule out fractures. Will suggest steroids for two weeks low dose taking care of infection. Physiotherapy after one week.
