UNLABELLED: A case of neonatal rectal prolapse during Shigella diarrhea is described. A 10 days neonate exclusively breast fed, whose 2 years old brother has had the same process 2 weeks ago. Medical treatment with intravenous ceftriaxone resolved rectal prolapse in 48 hours. Stool cultures showed the presence of Shigella flexneri II resistant to amoxicillin; blood and cerebrospinal fluid, cultures were negative.

CONCLUSION: Rectal prolapse is an uncommon complication seen in infants with Shigella diarrhea. It has been described in older children, but never before in neonates.
