A newborn baby was admitted for respiratory distress, soon after a Caesarian section performed for acute polyhydramnios in the third trimester... The baby showed nasal flaring and sternal and substernal retraction... All neonatal reflexes were absent and there was hypotonia of all the muscles... The baby was put under an oxygen hood, but then required mechanical ventilation... Neuro USG showed no hemorrhage in the germinal matrix or the ventricle... The baby succumbed to the respiratory distress... The commonest cause of such signs in a newborn is a neuromuscular disorder... It is now agreed that though the sign is more likely to be seen in myotonic dystrophy, it can be seen in any neuromuscular disorder... Tall vertebrae may also occur, but the neonate in our case had normal vertebrae... The clinical differential diagnosis in this case included “floppy baby,” hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, and a congenital neuromuscular disorder... Ischemic encephalopathy was ruled out by neuro USG.

Figure 0001: Chest radiograph on day 1

Mentions: Neuro USG showed no hemorrhage in the germinal matrix or the ventricle. Chest radiographs revealed normal lungs on day 1 [Figure 1] but showed a collapsed left lung on day 2 [Figure 2].
