Amniotic band syndrome is a unique condition in which amnion a normal structure causes complications. A case of second gravid, obese who is a known diabetic came to OPD at 13 weeks pregnancy for regular antenatal check up. A routine ultrasonogram was advised in which multiple anomalies were noted and the diagnosis of amniotic band syndrome was made. The parents were counseled for medical termination of pregnancy and after obtaining the consent termination were performed and the parents were asked to postpone the next pregnancy for minimum 6 months. This anomaly as seen in this patient could be due to risk factors like diabetes and obesity.
