Raised limb bands are a recently described disorder characterized by skin-colored linear plaques typically located on the extremities of affected children. Various etiologies for their development have been proposed, including amniotic bands. We report a child with extensive raised bands of the trunk and extremities and documented amniotic bands in utero. We propose altering the name of this entity to reflect the wider potential distribution of the lesions. The presence of documented amniotic bands and other sequelae typical for the amniotic band sequence in this patient strongly implicates amniotic bands or related pathology in the formation of acquired raised bands of infancy.
