Two cases of forearm compartment syndrome in neonates are presented. The compartment syndrome may be initiated before actual delivery and may appear in an advanced stage. In both children good clinical results were achieved when standard guidelines for managing compartment syndrome and established Volkmann's contracture were applied. Although uncommon, compartment syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis of the neonate who is unable to move an extremity.
