In brief: Calcifications.
One may see fetal intracranial hyperechogenic foci or calcifications and ventricular dilatation on prenatal ultrasound, and these are poor prognostic signs.
Intrahepatic densities, increased thickness and hyperdensity of the placenta, ascites, and rarely pericardial and pleural effusions have also been observed. Fetal demise and poor fetal growth are not as likely.
