Good Morning!
Adrenal hematoma may occur in the neonatal period as a consequence of difficult labor or cauuse may not be evident. it occurs in 3 live birth/100,000. later it may cause calcification and may affect adrenal function but usually it gets resolved with in 3-6 months, hence a follow up usg required at 6 month of age.
Get an ultrasonography done and consult paeditrician/endocrinologist.
