Progressively increasing fever and alterations in the general condition in a newborn infant during the first week following birth were associated with a mass in the right flank. Intravenous urography demonstrated mild scoliosis, concave to the right, dilation of the right excretory pathways, and anteromedial displacement of the kidney and ureter. Blood sedimentation rate was raised, with increased white blood cell counts and polymorphonucleosis. On operation, a perinephretic abcess due to staphylococcus aureus was located and drained. Clinical and radiological features of perinephric abscesses in the newborn are described, the interest of the case reported being that these lesions are rarely present during the neonatal period.
