Case report

A 16-year-old woman (G1 P0), was referred to our department again at 37 weeks of gestation. Her previous ultrasound performed at 14 weeks was normal. Out ultrasound examination revealed hyperechoic lesions within the fetal gallbladder consistent with gallstones. No other anomalies were found.
