All the following regarding congenital circumferential constriction bands is true except:
|A||It does not completely encircle the limb|
|B||Usually the foot is deformed|
|C||The lymphatics and superficial circulation is partially obstructed|
|D||There is pitting edema distal to the constriction|
It does not completely encircle the limb
A congenital circumferential constriction or Streeter band of the soft tissues of the leg is rare it is seen at birth as a depression in the soft tissues completely encircling the limb. Often the foot also is deformed the deep fascia may be affected, and usually the lymphatics and superficial circulation are partially obstructed and distal to the constriction1 is pitting edema which is cured only after excision of the band.
