No: Erb's palsy doesn't involve brain. So, memory loss has no link to erb's palsy.
Dr. Kevin Windisch
Pediatrics 25 years experience
No: Erbs palsy effects the peripheral nerves, not the brain. Watch http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=b68jtv0-teo to learn more.
Dr. William Singer
Pediatric Neurology 51 years experience
No relationship: Erb palsy is the result of a stretching and or tearing of the nerves to the arm due to shoulder dystocia. It should not have anything to do with memory difficulty, unless the diagnosis of Erb palsy is confused with an upper extremity diosrde due to brain injury.
