Abstract
Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita is congenital disorder that characterized by multiple joint contractures. Although there are characteristic morphologic features, most of cases are diagnosed at birth and cases diagnosed by prenatal ultrasonography are rare. We describe a case of fetal arthrogryposis multiplex congenita seen prenatally with sonographic feature of multiple joint contractures including clubhands, clubfeet, and absent fetal movements in late second trimester. This report is the first case of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita that diagnosed by prenatal ultrasonography in Korean literature.
