    CASTEJON CRUZ, Óscar Alberto et al. Amniotic band syndrome associated with sequence Potter in the South regional hospital, Choluteca Honduras. SCIENTIFICA [online]. 2016, vol.14, n.1, pp. 28-31. ISSN 1813-0054.

    Amniotic band syndrome, the most widely accepted cause is premature rupture of the amnion that occurs early in pregnancy with the formation of bands that compress the fetal parts causing kidney, lung bone deformities; however, there are multifactorial theories such as maternal abdominal trauma, bacterial infections, amniocentesis and maternal drug exposure. Its incidence between 1: 1.200 to 15.000 cases. Association with a Potter sequence has not been reported in the literature. If female patient 22 years, from 31.1 weeks LMP exposed pregnancy. Private clinic sent to the Regional Emergency Obstetrics Hospital South (Choluteca, Honduras) by absent amniotic fluid and fetal hypo motility of 32 hours of evolution. Gestas 2 Deaths 1. He denied having perceived loss of amniotic fluid and clinically Premature Membrane Rupture discarded. Ultrasonography reported: Product with Potter Facies. Hyperechoic structure was identified, no vascular flows inside, arising from placental affects the left edge and compatible with distal upper limb fetal amniotic band. Product obtained death, female, with right forearm and distorted same deformation of both lower extremities and amputation of four fingers of his left foot. flattened face, low nasal bridge, palpebral grooves, low-set ears, redundant skin associated with neck absent amniotic fluid and urinary tract disorders suggest Potter sequence. For proper genetic counseling in these cases should have access to institutional autopsy in regional hospitals. The Potter sequence is autosomal dominant, when expressed with these conditions, is incompatible with life. They have no reports in the literature of the association of this sequence with amniotic band syndrome.
