In brief: LGA babies

Large for gestational age infants are at higeher risk for birth injury, the most common is clavicular fx, which is generally dxed and treated with good results.
Related type of injury brachial palsy may not have good prognosis, specially if the brachial nerve has sustained severe injury.
