Amniotic band syndrome is a set of congenital malformations ranging from minor constriction rings and lymphedema of the digits to complex, bizarre multiple congenital anomalies that are attributed to amniotic bands that stick, entangle, and disrupt fetal parts. The most commonly associated anomalies include amputations, constriction bands, syndactyly, craniofacial defects, and club feet. A case of amniotic band syndrome involving limb anomalies and orofacial cleft deformity in a Nigerian child is reported.
