Bone mineral density (BMD) increases during growth until a peak is reached at maturity. The risk of development of postmenopausal osteoporosis depends on the peak bone density and the rate of its subsequent loss.

Presented is a case of a hepatic calcified mass complicating umbilical vein catheterization in a neonate and diagnosed by wedge biopsy. Wedge biopsy of the hepatic mass, situated in proximity to the falciform ligament, revealed expansion of portal tracts by fibrosis and calcification. Some aggregates of calcified material appeared in ectatic vascular(More)
