ABSTRACT: The amniotic band syndrome (ABS) refers to the infrequent occurrence of congenital deformities presumably due to fetal entanglement in strands of ruptured amniotic sac. The most commonly associated anomalies include amputations, constriction bands, syndactyly, craniafocial defects, club feet, and cleft lip. We present a typical case and short literature review of ABS. The infant reported also had a connective tissue nevus and a cutaneous striated muscle hamartoma.
