Conjunctivitis and Chloramphenicol

  • Marvyn Elton

Abstract

Conjunctivitis means inflammation of the conjunctiva. There are four main types of conjunctivitis: bacterial, adenoviral, allergic and chlamydial. It is also possible for a foreign body on the conjunctiva to cause conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis may be accompanied by soreness or discomfort, but the presence of pain is a sign that something else is wrong. Permission was not granted for electronic publication of this article.
