  1. Hi! Thank you all for trying to help. It's the first time I use this forum. It's very good to finelly find a place where we can share experiences and make some questions with neonatologists all over the world. The baby remains well appearing. We perform an echo and an abdominal ultrassound, both normal (none evidence of abnormal IVC anatomy or portal hypertension). He was discharged at 60 hours of life and is scheduled for follow up appointment in 4 weeks. I'll keep in touch!
  2. Hi. Today I've examined a 20 hours of life, male, with some kind of abdominal collateral circulation, but no hepatosplenomegally or massa. No other abnormal findings on physical exam. He was delivered at 40 weeks by a 25 year old gravida 2 para 1 woman with negative serologic findings (CMV not tested). The neonate was delivered vaginally and had APGAR scores of 8-9, and was transfered to Well Baby Nursery. Would tou think about some specific condition? Any tests? I've never seen such finding in a infant without liver failure... Is It possible to be normal? Thank you!
