Aim: To evaluate the aetiopathogenetic factors in cases of retroperitoneal abscess in young infants, particularly the correlation with omphalitis. Methods: We describe the cases of two infants, aged 8 and 3 wk, respectively, with a history of omphalitis during the first weeks of life and subsequent development of a retroperitoneal abscess. Both infants underwent surgical drainage of the abscess. Results: In case 1, Staphylococcus aureus was found in cultures from abscess pus, and in case 2 from umbilical pus, abscess purulent material and blood. Both infants are in good health after a follow-up of 6 mo and 8 y, respectively.
