Abstract

Pulmonary artery, and rarely aortic, calcifications have been reported in sporadic case reports in the recipient twin of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. This presentation is more likely to be secondary to the haemodynamic alterations in the recipient twin, but must be differentiated from idiopathic infantile arterial calcification as the clinical implications, treatment, and prognosis may be drastically different.
