Abstract
The amniotic band syndrome is a collection of fetal malformations associated with fibrous bands that appear to entangle or entrap various fetal parts in utero, leading to deformation, malformation, or disruption. The fibrous bands are mesodermic in origin and thought to be emanated from external surface of ruptured amniotic membrane. Misdiagnosis and inappropriate family counseling are common features. We experienced one case of amniotic band syndrome in 32 years old primigravid woman who had twin pregnancy after ovulation induction with Pergonal. We report the case with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Amniotic band syndrome, Gastroschisis, Congenital malformation, Twin pregnancy
