The paper is focused on a description of a perinatal trauma in a newborn. The procedures of the phased wound healing in the newborn with the perinatal trauma – the atypical fracture of humerus and the non-healing wound caused by the immobilization bandage – are presented. A special attention is given to the use of traumatic procedures and non-adhesive materials as suitable agents for the wound care.
