A female infant with the amniogenic band syndrome is described with typical digital constriction bands, amputations and syndactyly. The amniotic bands were demonstrated macroscopically and histologically, thus establishing the diagnosis. Facial dysplasia and unilateral facial paresis were attributed to undefined mechanical effects following amniotic rupture. In addition, there was evidence of partial umbilical cord compression which did not appear to have affected fetal wellbeing.
