The congenital constriction band syndrome(which is analogous to amniotic band syndrome and Streeter dysplasia), which consist of constriction bands, peripheral lymphedema, acrosyndactyly, club foot, congenital amputation, is thought to be arised as a result of external factors affecting the fetus after early developmental period is completed. Congenital constriction band is rare congenital malformation and has rarely been reported about its occurrence on the adult face. We report a case of constriction band developed in the face and head of a 35-year-old female. Excision and W-plasty was performed for the surgical treatment of this band.
