Neonatal rhinitis is characterized by watery or mucous coryza and nasal mucosa edema without anatomical anomaly in neonate. The recognition and treatment of this disease is important, because neonates breathe through nose obligatory, and mismanagement of this can result in poor feeding or even death from respiratory distress. It is essential to rule out maternal syphilis infection, and anatomical anomalies such as choanal atresia, and tracheoesophgeal fistula before diagnosis is made. A newborn male infant with neonatal rhinitis is reported with a brief review of literature. He showed cyanosis 3 hours after his birth, watery and mucoid coryza, and mucosal edema examined by flexible nasoscopy.
