Abstract

Amniotic band syndrome (ABS) is a rare congenital condition, occurring as an outcome of entanglement of fetal parts with amniotic bands during intrauterine life resulting in anatomical abnormalities. ABS should be considered in every newborn with congenital malformations. In this report, a case of a preterm female baby delivered to a diagnosed (Preterm pre-labour rupture of membranes) PPROM mother, with abnormalities of the extremities due to ABS is discussed.
