Introduction: Neonatal period damages occur due to mechanical forces (compression, stretching) during the birth process are classified as birth trauma. Various maternofetal factors, such as maternal diabetes, breech or other noncephalic presentations and birth weight might have been effective in developing prenatal trauma. Shoulder dystocia, which is common in neonates` of diabetic mothers, usually occurs in term neonates and associated with birth trauma and complications such as brachial plexus palsy. A higher rate of trauma was reported in neonates with birth weight more than 4500 gram. Recently, incidence of birth trauma was decreased, because of better prenatal care. Fetus face trauma might happen due to maternal blunt trauma. Although this type of fetus injuries are rare, they could be life threatening. In this article we report a neonate with nasal trauma.
