Sudural Hematoma in 10 week old baby

My nephew, 10 weeks old, 11# 2 Oz, was taken to the hospital, ultimately was diagnosed with subdural hematoma. I am trying to find information on this as to if excessive force during delivery, ie, baby being chin up, looking at 11 O'clock, coming down the birth canal, doctors pushing and pulling on his little head, doctors face turning red, if this could ultimately cause this type of injury?

Hi there. Subdural hematomas in the neonate are unusual, difficult delivery accounting for most cases. Forceps or vacuum extraction delivery can cause neonatal SDHs and theseusually resolve.  Some metabolic disorders like glutaric aciduria type 1A  and menke disease can be associated. Consult your nephew’s pediatrician for more elaboration on the condition and prognosis. Take care and all the best.
