Abstract: 

Amitriptyline is a Tricycles antidepressant drug about teratogenic effects of which there are limitted, different and controversial information. In some of the present literature, there is no mention of the relationship between taking this drug and its effect on abnormalities, while there have been sporadic reports of such effects during pregnancy. This report is meant to describe an infant with transverse meromelia in its left side upper limbs, whose mother used to take 25-mg Amitriptyline Hydrochloride pills occasionally during the third month and regularly once a day afterwards. The deficiency was manifested as total lack of the hand and partial lack of the forearm.
