We describe a neonate with an infected right atrial thrombus. The infected thrombus caused an ongoing Staphylococcus aureus-sepsis. Data in literature on treatment of infected thrombi in neonates are limited. Our patient was successfully treated with antibiotics and heparin. If an infected cardiac thrombus in a neonate does not cause severe hemodynamic problems or pulmonary embolism, treatment with antibiotics and heparin can be sufficient.
