Time to take this seriously.
A 55-year-old lady dislocated her right shoulder following a fall. It was noted that she had reduced sensation over the “regimental badge” area. She underwent closed reduction of the dislocation in casualty under sedation. After successful reduction, the patient presented with an inability to elevate her arm and persistent numbness over the regimental badge area. Active contraction of the deltoid was not possible. The swallow-tail sign was also positive.
