Amniotic band syndrome is a term used interchangeably to Streeter’s dysplasia and refers to a continuous spectrum of manifestations occurring due to intrauterine rupture of amnion. The disease may be characterised by simple soft tissue constriction bands to amputation of digits or more severely of the whole limb due to dysplastic vasculature. Due to digital amputation the condition is also known as pseudo-ainhum. This is a rare condition. Therefore, we report a case wherein at the age of five years there are constriction bands in the right leg while amputation was noted in toes and in the right index and middle finger.
