The amniotic band syndrome is an uncommon congenital fetal abnormality, presumably due to fetal entanglement in strands of ruptured amniotic sac. The defects caused by this syndrome vary from simple limb defects to major visceral and craniofacial defects. We cared for a newborn infant with this syndrome, who showed constriction rings of the right leg and right axilla, right club foot, thoracic scoliosis, polydactyly, absence of the right thumb and aplasia cutis of the scalp. We report this case with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Amniotic band syndrome; Aplasia cutis; Scoliosis
