Abstract

A prenatal ultrasound at 28 weeks gestation demonstrated a heterogeneous mass in the inferior aspect of the liver. The infant was delivered at full term and had no clinical findings other than the palpable liver mass. All laboratory studies were normal. At 1 month of age, the patient underwent resection of the mass which represented an in utero ovarian torsion that had adhered to the liver.
