Blue Arm
Anon_68068 posted:
My baby is 12 hours old. I'm concerned because his left arm is blue and cool and they said his blood pressure is bad. I guess it was 125/70 in his left arm and within normal range in his right. He has no other problems except mild hypothermia. They took an X-ray of his heart and all seems to be well there. Could you tell me what some of the possible diagnosis are for what they say is "cyanosis" in only one arm? He isn't blue anywhere else on his body.

Hi Anon -

Just checking in to see how your son is doing and what you have been able to find out.

He ended up having a stroke. I guess it was pretty massive. Still never said anything about the blue arm, and they even let me go home. I was gone for two hours and then I got a call saying to come back and they couldn't tell me why. Come to find out he'd had a stroke that caused several seizures. It has all been pretty rough.
