Potterâ€™s Syndrome is a rare congenital disorder which is diagnosed at birth. It refers to a group of findings which are associated with the lack of amniotic fluid due to renal failure in an unborn infant. It is characterized by the typical physical appearance of a foetus, which is associated with pulmonary hypoplasia. In oligohydramnios, the foetus is not cushioned from the walls of the uterus. The pressure of the uterine wall leads to an unusual facial appearance, abnormal limbs, or limbs that are held in abnormal positions or contractures. The foetus will die soon after the birth due to respiratory insufficiency.
