BACKGROUND: Neonatal suppurative parotitis (NSP) is a rare disease. Only 32 cases have been reported in the English-Language literature between 1970 and 2004. METHODS: We searched the Medline for acute, neonatal, bacterial, suppurative, parotitis, facial, preauricular swelling starting from 1970, limiting our search to the English-language literature. We reviewed all the reported cases together with 3 more managed in our department. RESULTS: We could identify 9 new cases since 2004. The total number of patients reviewed is 44 including our patients. Most of them were males (77%). The majority developed unilateral inflamed parotid swelling (77%) and exuded pus from the ipsilateral Stensen duct. Fever was seen in less than half of them (47%). Premature babies constituted a third of the patients. Staphylococcus aureus was the leading causative agent (61%). Most patients responded well to conservative treatment with antibiotics (77%). The most frequently used combination of antibiotics was an anti-staphylococcal agent with either an aminoglycoside or a third generation cephalosporin. A minority required surgical drainage. No deaths were reported in the group studied after 1970. CONCLUSION: NSP is rare but easy to diagnose and if readily treated with appropriate antibiotics the outcome is excellent.
