Abstract

Amniotic band sequence (ABS) refers to a variable spectrum of congenital anomalies that occur in association with fibrous amniotic bands. The abnormalities are typically limited to external structures, most frequently to limbs and digits resulting in digital amputation and constriction rings. Sometimes ABS may be associated with visceral abnormalities and clubfoot. We report a case of ABS with clubfoot in a neonate.
