Congenital solitary liver abscess in newborns is an extremely rare and serious disease. Only one case was reported in the literature. Most a liver abscesses have a postnatal origin. We encountered a premature infant who had a low. Apgar score and an elevated right diaphragm at birth. Pyogenic solitary liver abscess was diagnosed by ultrasound and computed tomography. Staphylococcus aureus was cultured from ultrasound guided aspiration fluid.
