Peromelia is a rare condition leading to the absence of limb. Birth of such a baby is an unexpected and emotionally disturbing event for the parents, if it was not diagnosed antenatally. Family members and especially the mother at such time need proper counseling from the health-care workers during the initial days. The management aspects including prosthesis and timing of intervention need to be informed to the parents. Here, we describe a case of peromelia with emphasis on the psychological aspect of management.
