ABSTRACT :
Amniotic band syndrome (ABS) is a rare condition, potentially associated with a variety of different birth defects. It is also known as ADAM complex (amniotic deformities, adhesion, mutilation), amniotic band sequence, amniotic disruption complex, annular grooves, congenital amputation, congenital constricting bands, Streeter bands, Streeter anomaly, transverse terminal defects of limb, aberrant tissue bands, amniochorionic mesoblastic fibrous strings, and amniotic bands.1 The severity of amniotic band syndrome can range from a single, isolated finding to multiple, disfiguring complications. The arms and legs are most often affected. The head and face and, in some cases, various internal organs can also be affected. General anesthesia is the preferred option for surgical corrections of the anomalies.

CASE :
A male baby of 7 months and 8 kg body weight was admitted for treatment of constriction rings affecting all of his four limbs. It was also associated with cleft lip and bilateral cleft palate. He had been operated earlier at 4 months of age for cleft lip and was awaiting correction of cleft palate. He was a full-term baby, born normally at hospital to a G3 P2, 30 year-old mother. There was no significant antenatal history........
