Case report

A 40-year-old woman (G5P2) was examined in our department at 36 weeks of her pregnancy. Her previous examinations were reported to be normal.

Our ultrasound examination found a fetus of overall normal biometry, except of abdominal circumference reaching 97th percentile.

The male neonate was delivered at term (2700 g, Apgar score 7/10/10). Laboratory tests showed thrombocytopenia (80,000/mm3).

Here are some of the images that we obtained:

Image 1: 36 weeks of gestational age

Images 2, 3, 4, and 5: CT images

Images 6, 7: Postnatal images (after delivery - image 6; three months after delivery - image 7)

When you have tried to solve the case on your own (no team work here please !) you can find the Answer here.
