Abstract

Submandibular suppurative sialadenitis occurring as an isolated lesion in the neonatal period is extremely rare. A case of a preterm newborn, who developed an isolated submandibular suppurative sialadenitis is described. A literature review highlighting salient points on this topic is also presented. In particular, an important role of prematurity in the ethiology of this pathological condition is shown and discussed.
