An infant with neonatal staphylococcal infection had evidence of pelvic inflammation, peritonitis and proctitis which resulted in narrowing of the rectosigmoid, uterectasis, pyelocaliectasis, and partial obstruction of the inferior vena cava. Appropriate treatment resulted in resolution of these findings.
