Session 7: Neonatal Ophthalmia

Neonatal Ophthalmia which is also known as Neonatal Conjunctivitis is defined as the conjunctival inflammation occurring in the new-born babies in the first 30 days of life. The risk factors include silver nitrate exposure, ocular trauma during delivery, mechanical ventilation, prematurity, HIV infected mothers, poor prenatal care, and poor delivery conditions. Non-specific signs of neonatal conjunctivitis include conjunctival injection, tearing, mucopurulent or non-purulent discharge, chemosis, and eyelid swelling.
