Abstract

Neonatal sialadenitis of the submandibular gland caused by Staphylococcus aureus is described in 2 full term newborns without any risk factors. Fifteen other newborns with isolated submandibular sialadenitis have been reported in the English language literature. Sialadenitis was caused by S. aureus in 87% and occurred primarily in premature gavage-fed neonates (87%).
