The present case report highlights an Unusual evolution of a serosanguineous bump. We report the case of a male infant, aged 2 months, born at 40 weeks of amenorrhea, resulting from a well-monitored pregnancy at term, a dystocic vaginal delivery by suction cup, APGAR at birth 10/ 10th. The instrumentation of vaginal extractions is a widespread obstetrical practice. Different instrumental extraction techniques can be proposed, mainly the suction cup and forceps, two methods which are not without risk for the newborn. From the outset, it appears that there are different neonatal complications from the instrumentation of vaginal delivery. In our case of a superinfected serosanguine bump, the diagnosis was obvious, we had instrumental dystocic delivery as a risk factor, the collection was drained and the bacteriological samples had revealed a mutiresistant staphylococcus sensitive to aminoglycoside and fluoroquinolone, and the evolution was favorable by resorption of the abscess.
