Abstract

 

Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common sexually transmitted pathogen in adults, especially young adults which at delivery may be transmitted from mother to child. It causes conjunctivitis in adults and infants - Conjunctivitis inclusoria adultorum and neonatorum. Chlamydial conjunctivitis in adults is associated with a genital primary infection in up to 80% of cases. The most common way is that organisms are transferred to the eye by autoinoculation from the urogenital tract. The occurrence of C. trachomatis infection in infants is directly related to the prevalence of maternal urogenital infections and vertical transmission rates. Besides clinical picture, an exact laboratory diagnosis is necessary for diagnosis Conjunctivitis inclusoria. Treatment for chlamydial conjunctivitis includes local and systemic administration of appropriate antibiotics.
