We present a 27-day-old girl with no significant medical history who attended pediatric consultation presenting with edema and hematoma in her right breast. The patient was admitted the next day following examination in ER due to the worsening of a starting breast abscess and was treated with intravenous antibiotic therapy.  Due to the worsening of the condition and despite the intravenous antibiotic therapy, a surgical treatment was performed consisting in draining the abscess and washing the cavity. Finally, the problem was solved without any consequences.
