We describe a newborn with multiple congenital anomalies due to the Amniotic Band Disruption Complex. Cerebral computerized tomography and plain films of the extremities corroborated the clinical diagnosis. The purpose of this case report is to alert the radiologist to the varied radiographic appearance of this little known entity and to provide a historical and embryologic background.
