Abstract

Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a rare congenital syndrome manifested clinically by widespread contractures and deformities of multiple joints. The individual diagnosed with AMC must undertake a comprehensive program of physical, cognitive, and social habilitation, which normally includes multiple surgeries to partially correct the deformities. Ultrasonography can identify characteristics of AMC in utero that would be important information when counseling parents. Multiple etiologies for AMC have been described. We report characteristic sonographic features and pathological correlation of a fetus with AMC.
