Caption: Close up of the deformed hand and forearm of a "thalidomide baby". Thalidomide is a sedative drug which was introduced in Britain and Germany in the early 1960's. It was later found to cause foetal abnormalities involving limb malformation when taken during the first three months of pregnancy and has now been withdrawn.
