Liver abscess is rare in neonates. The present report concerns a preterm neonate with history of antenatal laser ablation therapy (to prevent twin to twin transfusion syndrome), who developed liver abscesses within a few days of life. Conservative treatment with antibiotics led to the normalisation of inflammatory markers, leaving an echogenic (calcified) area in the liver.
