  1. The bacterial etiology of conjunctivitis in early infancy.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors conducted this study to determine the etiologic agents of conjunctivitis in early infancy.

    From 1985 to 1990, 630 infants enrolled in a randomized, controlled, double-masked study of eye prophylaxis were observed for 60 days after delivery for signs of conjunctivitis.

    The following isolates were categorized as pathogens:

    • Haemophilus influenzae,

    • Streptococcus pneumoniae,

    • Neisseria cinerea,

    • Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Chlamydia trachomatis.

    Using conditional logistic regression for analysis of 97 infant pairs, the authors identified isolates categorized as pathogens almost exclusively among cases (odds ratio (OR)=18.0, 95% confidence interval (Cl) 2.3-128).
