Two cases of acute purulent pericarditis in a 10 years old male and 19 months old female were presented. In a 10 years old boy, the pericarditis was complicated to septicemia and terminated into possible constriction.

Hemolytic staphylococcus aureus was cultured from the pericardial effusion in both cases The brief review of related literature was made.
