Early prenatal disruption; a foetus with features of severe limb body wall sequence, body stalk anomaly and amniotic bands: Disruption in early pregnancy can cause severe and multiple congenital anomalies in a foetus. Three sequences, Limb-body wall complex (LBWC), amniotic band sequence (ABS) and body-stalk anomaly (BSA) are thought to be caused by disruption. This case report describes a foetus with severe multiple congenital anomalies, that fit the diagnoses of all three sequences, which might advocate these syndromes are a spectrum of one sequence.
