DIAZ ALVAREZ, Manuel; CLAVER ISAS, Daniel; MEDINA GONZALEZ, Teresa  and  RIVERA ALES, Libertad. Eight cases of acute neonatal suppurative parotitis. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2015, vol.87, n.2, pp.254-261. ISSN 0034-7531.

Acute suppurative parotitis is a rare infection in the pediatric and neonatological practice. This case presentation showed our experience in the care of a case series affected by acute suppurative parotitis in their neonatal period and described the characteristics of their presentation. The clinical findings obtained in 8 patients with neonatal suppurative parotitis, who had been admitted to the neonatology service of ¨Juan Manuel Marquez¨university pediatric hospital in the period of 1992 to 2013, were presented and compared with the reports from the international literature. The presentation characteristics of the disease in our cases agreed with those of the reviewed literature in many aspects, and it was proved that this illness is rate in the neonatal period. This is the first report published about this disease in neonates in Cuba and the highest number of cases in the Latin American context.

Keywords : suppurative parotitis; suppurative sialandenitis; newborn; Staphylococcus aureus; neonatal infections.
