If a two year old caught her arm in a dresser drawer and pulled on it to get to remove it, can it cause a spiral fracture, the history of this child is in the past she has done exactly that getting her arm caught in the drawer.
This would be an unlikely cause for a fracture to the arm. The description you provide is very brief and does not indicate the type or location of the fracture.
