Abstract

Hand anomalies in the amniotic band sequence are frequently both complex and difficult to explain in terms of our conventional understanding of limb embryogenesis. A case manifesting pseudosyndactyly between nonadjacent fingers confirms the role of an in utero disturbance after the seventh week, in concert with close apposition between nearby but not adjacent parts.
