Arthrogryposis multiplex congenital (AMC) is the congenital joint contracture in two or more areas of the body. “Arthrogryposis” comes from Greek, meaning "curving of joints." Children born with joint contractures have abnormal fibrosis of the muscle tissue, causing muscle shortening, and are unable to perform active extension and flexion in the affected joint or joints. Arthrogryposis is divided into three groups: amyoplasia, distal arthrogryposis, and syndromic. Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint contractures and muscle weakness. Distal arthrogryposis mainly involves the hands and feet. Neurological or muscle disease forms of arthrogryposis are in the syndromic group.
