The article describes the clinical manifestations of amniotic constriction band and evaluates the various theories and etiology of the disease. It relates that amniotic constriction band is associated with disruptions, deformations and malformation anomalies, oligodactyly, acrosyndactyly, cleft palate and scoliosis. Its clinical manifestations include absence of the limb, short umbilical cord, craniofacial disruptions and neural tube defects.
