Arthrogryposis is a syndrome that can be, seen in different diseases that have in common the existence of multiple joint stiffness. Once the diagnosis poses, the prognosis will depend on the severity of the clinical presentation and its precocity of installation. Management depends on the etiology, which makes the treatment different from one case to another. In cases of suspected Arthrogryposis, practitioners should have attention to amniotic fluid quantity, fetal motricity, swallowing movements and research an amyotrophy or abnormalities of the extremities. We report a particular case of antenatal diagnosis of Arthrogryposis with excess amniotic fluid.
