Neonatal suppurative parotitis is a rare condition characterized by swelling, pain and erythema over the parotid gland. There may be a purulent exsudate from the Stensen duct. The predominant etiology is Staphylococcus aureus but cases with gram negative bacteria and streptococci have been reported. Most cases are managed conservatively with intravenous antibiotic therapy, and early treatment reduces risks of complications like sepsis and intraglandular abscess. We report two cases of neonatal suppurative parotitis; two 14-days-old males, both with one day history of parotid swelling and erythema. In one of them purulent exudate could be extracted from the Stensen duct. One of them had positive blood culture with Staphylococcus aureus. Ultrasound examination showed an enlarged parotid gland but no abscess. Growth of Staphylococcus aureus was found in both cases and the patients responded well to intravenous antibiotic therapy.

INFLAMMATION of the PAROTID GLAND.
Yellow discoloration of the SKIN; MUCOUS MEMBRANE; and SCLERA in the NEWBORN. It is a sign of NEONATAL HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Most cases are transient self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) occurring in the first week of life, but some can be a sign of pathological disorders, particularly LIVER DISEASES.
Accumulation of BILIRUBIN, a breakdown product of HEME PROTEINS, in the BLOOD during the first weeks of life. This may lead to NEONATAL JAUNDICE. The excess bilirubin may exist in the unconjugated (indirect) or the conjugated (direct) form. The condition may be self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) or pathological with toxic levels of bilirubin.
A severe form of neonatal dwarfism with very short limbs. All cases have died at birth or later in the neonatal period.
A disorder of neuromuscular transmission that occurs in a minority of newborns born to women with myasthenia gravis. Clinical features are usually present at birth or develop in the first 3 days of life and consist of hypotonia and impaired respiratory, suck, and swallowing abilities. This condition is associated with the passive transfer of acetylcholine receptor antibodies through the placenta. In the majority of infants the myasthenic weakness resolves (i.e., transient neonatal myasthenia gravis) although this disorder may rarely continue beyond the neonatal period (i.e., persistent neonatal myasthenia gravis).
