Can a femur bone spiral fracture occur with out abuse in a 3- 4 week old infant? If so How?
I am looking for accidental or can it be sustained during birth?

Harold D
Yes, it could be broken during delivery, especially if it was a difficult one. Supposedly my collarbone was broken during delivery. Things like that can happen easily since the bones are small and much more fragile.

Could it be from brittle bone disease?

Unless there is some medical condition I would find it highly unlikely that a thigh bone would be twisted in such a way as to get fractured during birth. We are not born feet first like cattle and they don't usually pull a breech baby out they would do a c-section. The most common parts to be injured are the collarbone and shoulders. Also they are going to be able to tell if the fracture occured 3-4 weeks ago cause it would already be in the process of healing.

Why are you asking? Why are you 'looking' for accidental, I mean.... I'm sorry but the lack of information in your question makes your question awful suspicious in a very bad way.

You need to talk to a Dr. I hope the baby wasn't abused.

fracture with no reason? i'd say not unless there is a severe underlying medical problem

‚ô• J'Adore J.M del Potro‚ô•
I wouldn't think it would be easy. Baby's bones are so soft and the femur is still very underdeveloped at that age, in fact, the most commonly broken part of the femur isn't developed. And then you are saying spiral fracture... I mean it must be possible but I have no idea how. Very very very unlikely I'd say.

Spiral fracture in a femur means a hard twisting motion occurred. Sounds like abuse.
