Acute parotitis is a rare disease in the neonatal period. Risks implicated in its pathogenesis are prematurity and dehydration. Staphylococcus aureus is the most common bacterial agent causing this condition. The diagnosis of acute neonatal parotitis is clinical. Treatment consists of intravenous antibiotics, and surgery is reserved for severe complications. The prognosis is favorable with rare recurrence. The authors describe a case of an 8-day-old, full-term boy diagnosed with acute parotitis.
