Abstract

In this study, we report 4 infants who developed severe ocular reactions after neonatal ocular prophylaxis with gentamicin ophthalmic ointment during a period of erythromycin ophthalmic ointment shortage. In light of this experience, gentamicin ophthalmic ointment should not be used as an alternative for neonatal ocular prophylaxis.
