A fifth-month fetus and a newborn with amniogenic band anomalies were examined at autopsy. Both specimens were obtained from women who had undergone oophorectomy during early pregnancy. The dead male fetus was aborted spontaneously, and had a micrognathia, a right club foot, and a constriction ring on the left lower leg. The left fingers 2, 3, and 4 were attached to the placenta by a fibrous string. No internal anomaly was noted. In the other case, a male newborn was delivered at the 39th week of gestation and had an agenesis of the calvarium, a cleft lip with palate, an amputation of the right toe, and constriction rings on right fingers 3 and 4 and left finger 3. The placenta was attached to the left temporooccipital region of the head by a fibrous string. Also present was an atrial septum defect and a horseshoe kidney. Possible etiology is discussed in relation to the "amniogenic bands" hypotheses.
