Coxsackievirus group B can cause a severe systemic disease in the perinatal period. Severe manifestations like meningitis, encephalitis, hepatitis, and myocarditis have been previously reported. A case of a twin neonate infected by coxsackievirus group B is described, who developed progressive extensive hepatic calcifications demonstrated by ultrasound and computed tomography with follow-up. Hepatic calcifications in coxsackievirus infection have not been previously reported.
