Abstract

This is a case report of a four week old newborn, presenting with a red and swollen right breast gland. Clinical examination and ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis of a suppurative mastitis. The abcess was incised and drained and systemic antibiotic therapy started. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from the culture. The important aspects of aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of suppurative mastitis in the newborn are discussed in a short literature review.
