Abstract

We describe two cases of neonatal suppurative parotitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Only 32 cases of neonatal suppurative parotitis (72% male) have been described in the English literature in the last 35 years. Thirty-eight percent were premature babies, only 41% were febrile and the causative agent in most cases was S. aureus. Recovery was achieved in 78% of the patients with antibiotic therapy without drainage.
