Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita:
Collection of congenital clinical syndromes, characterised by multiple contractures of joints that are often rigid. Thought to be due to oligiohydrominios and conditions that limit foetal movement.
Distal joints are usually more severely affected. Clubfoot is common.
