Potter's sequence is a deformation since it is the direct result of mechanical forces (oligohydramnios). If the oligohydramnios was the result of renal agenesis/dysgenesis (Potter's syndrome), the renal problem is a malformation or interruption - I'm pretty sure that the limb, lung, and facies of Potter's sequence are still considered deformation even if the root cause is a malformation. Another cause of Potter's sequence is premature rupture of membranes.

thank you very much for the replay. I found this in a question, they gave mutiple choices, and asked which one is considered deformation

A-dandy walker
B-club foot
C-potter's syndrome
D- arnauld chiari

so my first choice was club foot. then I was surprise that potter's syndrome is considered as deformation despite of the renal malformation . I was lost with that

thanks again
