Case report

A 25-year-old woman with unremarkable family and environmental history presented with a fetus with abnormal hepatic calcification at 22 weeks. Our ultrasound examination revealed echoic ovoid mass in the left upper part of the liver. No other anomalies were found and serological tests were normal. The diagnosis of hepatic calcification was confirmed after birth.
