Abstract
Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a congenital disorder showing multiple joint contractures. Although there are characteristic features in morphology, it is difficult to diagnose prenatally by ultrasonography. The causes of AMC include abnormalities of central nervous system, myopathies, connective tissue disorders, and intrauterine environmental factors such as oligohydramnios or uterine anomalies. We describe a case of prenatally diagnosed and postnatally evaluated AMC associated with maternal septate uterus.
Key Words: Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, Septate uterus, Prenatal diagnosis
