Country of Publication: England Publisher: London, Baillière, Tindall. Conjunctivitis is classified as either acute or chronic, according to its course. Acute conjunctivitis is manifested by Contagious ophthalmia: acute and chronic.

book purulent discharge from the eye and redness (hyperemia) of the palpebral and ocular conjunctivae and sometimes by punctate hemorrhages under the conjunctiva and conjunctival edema. A middle ear infection (otitis media) is a contagious ear infection with symptoms of earache, temporary hearing loss, and pus drainage from the infected ear.

Babies, toddlers, and young children are most at risk for this type of infection because of the underdeveloped length of the Eustachian tube. Treatment includes home remedies and antibiotics. Conjunctivitis is a common eye problem because the conjunctivae are continually exposed to microorganisms and environmental agents that can cause infections or allergic reactions.

Conjunctivitis can be acute or chronic depending upon how long the condition lasts, the severity of symptoms, and the type of organism or agent involved.

Viral conjunctivitis has an acute onset, spreading from one eye to the other within a week, and the inflammation lasts 4 days to 2 weeks. (Fig. ) Involvement of the second eye usually is less severe than the first affected eye, and this pattern helps distinguish viral from bacterial causes.

Chronic conjunctivitis lasting >4 weeks has a large differential, and therefore patients with chronic conjunctivitis should be referred to an ophthalmologist. The acute mucopurulent discharge of bacterial conjunctivitis is typically yellowish-white, thick, and creamy.

This is in contrast to the thin, grayish-white, watery, or stringy mucus seen in nonbacterial conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis can result from many causes, including viruses, bacteria, allergens, contact lens use, chemicals, fungi, and certain diseases. Schools should allow infected children to remain in school once any indicated therapy is implemented, except when viral or bacterial conjunctivitis is accompanied by systemic signs of illness.

Acute Bacterial Conjunctivitis • Presentation: Unilateral or bilateral, red eye, mucopurulent or purulent discharge continuously throughout the day, burning, irritation, mild chemosis • Neonates: symptoms appear d after birth (inclusion conjunctivitis of the newborn) • Highly contagious: spread by direct contact or by contaminated objects.

Although the dangers to men’s reproductive health must be recognized, women are clearly at greater risk of infection and carry the greater burden of the disease. Each year thousands of women die from the sequelae of undiagnosed or untreated RTIs, including cervical cancer, ectopic pregnancy, acute and chronic infections of the uterus and.

It. Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is inflammation of the outermost layer of the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelid.

It makes the eye appear pink or reddish. Pain, burning, scratchiness, or itchiness may occur. The affected eye may have increased tears or be "stuck shut" in the morning. Swelling of the white part of the eye may also : Viral, bacterial, allergies.

It may be divided as acute form and chronic form. The acute group includes seasonal (pollens, grass, greensward, soil) and long-term (perennial) (dust, mite, cockroach) allergic conjunctivitis. The chronic group includes vernal keratoconjunctivitis, atopic keratoconjunctivitis and giant papillary conjunctivitis.

The symptoms are bilateral. Acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC), a highly contagious eye disease, is caused primarily by either enterovirus 70 (EV70) or coxsackievirus A24 (CVA24) infection.
