Abstract

Fetal liver calcifications are a relatively common finding. They may be superficial or intrahepatic. Their presence has been linked to many diseases (meconium peritonitis, connatal infections, chromosomal abnormalities, ischemia, tumors, etc.). Despite its high frequency, their management is not properly notarized.

We introduce a case of liver calcification diagnosed at 24th pregnancy week and postnatally confirmed.
