Suppurative sialadenitis is rare in the neonate and usually involves the parotid glands. Isolated suppurative submandibular sialadenitis in the neonatal population is extremely rare. There are only 11 cases found in the literature of suppurative submandibular sialadenitis occurring as an isolated lesion. We describe a case of isolated submandibular sialadenitis progressing to submandibular abscess requiring incision and drainage in a term neonate. Pus culture yielded methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). A brief review of literature is included.
Key Words: Submandibular abscess; Neonate
