Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), or simply arthrogryposis, describes congenital joint AMC has been divided into three groups: amyoplasia, distal arthrogryposis, and syndromic. Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint. Distal arthrogryposis type 1 is a disorder characterized by joint deformities ( contractures) that restrict movement in the hands and feet. The term ” arthrogryposis”. A normal neurological examination suggests that arthrogryposis is due to amyoplasia, a distal arthrogryposis, a generalized connective tissue disorder, or fetal.
