The article focuses on the case regarding abdominal cellulitis due to Escherichia coli in a 2 month old premature newborn. The baby had moderate bronchopulmonary dysplasia, good growth, and normal neurological examinations. However, after many observations, a small violet spot was discovered on her right flank. Thus, perioperative observation confirmed the diagnosis of cellulitis without fascia injury. It was found that prompt surgical treatment prevented the occurrence of necrotizing fasciitis.
