Hepatic calcification in the fetus is considered an uncommon occurrence and the clinical significance is not fully known. We describe five cases with isolated hepatic calcification. The causes and postnatal outcome of the fetal liver calcifications detected by ultrasound imaging are discussed. Isolated fetal liver calcifications with no aneuploidy and infection have a good prognosis.
