Constriction rings syndrome is a congenital limb malformation disorder with an extremely variable clinical presentation characterized by the presence of partial to complete congenital fibrous circumferential constriction bands/rings on any part of the body although a particular predilection for the upper or lower extremities is seen. Phenotypes range from only a mild skin indentation to complete amputation of parts of the fetus (e.g. digits distal limb). Compression from the rings may lead to edema skeletal anomalies (e.g. fractures foot deformities) and infrequently neural compromise.
