Introduction: Limbs ischaemia represents a rare event during the neonatal period. The present paper reports an unusual case of precocious arm ischemia that occurred immediately after birth and successfully treated with a peripheral nerve blockade. Conclusions: Peripheral nerve blockade resulted in an effective and safe therapeutic approach able to allow the salvaging of the limbs.
