Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita
Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a sign rather than a diagnosis. It implies contractures in multiple body areas and occurs in 1:3,000-5,000 live births. Primary aetiologies include neuropathic, myopathic, metabolic, end plate and vascular disorder affecting the developing foetus, including limitation of foetal space. Amyoplasia is the most common type of AMC after central nervous system disorders. Knowledge about the classification of AMC is essential to make a correct diagnosis and treatment plans. We recommend follow-up by experienced paediatric orthopaedic surgeons and neurologists.
