Reveal Findings

CR – Numerous shard-like calcifications in the upper quadrants.

US – Extensive peripheral intrahepatic calcifications in a vascular distribution; no cyst or mass.

Reveal Discussion

An autopsy study of 33 spontaneously aborted fetuses showed hepatic calcifications, 18 related to the hepatic veins, 12 related to the portal veins, 2 intraparenchymal and one was mixed. Fetal anomalies were associated with 85% of cases; most common anomalies were calcified intraluminal meconium, cystic hygroma and metaphyseal lesions suggesting severe fetal illness as a common denominator. Maternal factors included history of birth control pills and low gravidity.
