Gonococcal ophthalmia neonatorum after delivery by cesarean section: report of a case.


This report describes a neonate delivered by cesarean section who had conjunctivitis due to Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Evidence supporting the hypothesis that gonococcal conjunctivitis can be acquired in utero is provided by this case study, which also emphasizes that saline lavage is inappropriate after instillation of AgNO3 into the neonate's eyes.
