Amniotic band syndrome (ABS) is defined as a continuous spectrum of manifestations due to intrauterine rupture of amnion, ranging from simple soft tissue constrictive bands to amputation of digits or more severely the whole limb due to dysplastic vasculature. This case is reported because of its extreme rarity and gratifying results if diagnosed and managed early. Despite the numerous descriptions of this syndrome in the literature, little is mentioned regarding its anaesthetic management.
