Acute Bacterial Conjunctivitis

Acute conjunctivitis can be caused by many bacteria. Symptoms are hyperemia, epiphora, irritation and secretion. The diagnosis is made clinically. The sessions are held with local antibiotics, but is reinforced in severe cases by systemic antibiotics.

Most bacterial conjunctivitis are acute. A chronic bacterial conjunctivitis can be caused by chlamydia and rarely Moraxella. A Chlamydienkonjunktivitis covers trachoma and inclusion conjunctivitis in adults or newborns.

Etiology Bacterial Conjunctivitis is usually caused by Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus species, or more rarely by Chlamydia trachomatis (trachoma). The Gonokokkenkonjunktivitis caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae usually occurs after sexual contact with a person who has a genital infection on. Ophthalmia neonatorum (neonatal conjunctivitis) is caused by maternal gonococcal and / or chlamydia infection. A neonatal conjunctivitis comes after a vaginal delivery with passage of an infected birth canal before at 20-40% of newborns. Symptoms and signs The symptoms are typically unilateral, but may spread within days to the other eye. The secretion is typically purulent. Bacterial conjunctivitis DR P.
