Bacterial conjunctivitis is usually a benign self-limiting illness. However, it can sometimes be serious or signify a severe underlying systemic disease. It is usually caused by Neisseria or Chlamidia. The symptoms may occur within the first 24 hours, and more frequently later. The aim is to compare the frequency of the disease between the newborns born by the mothers with or without prenatal risks of bacterial diseases. The focus was not on the cause of the conjunctivitis. Conclusion: Although this is already known causative relationship, our intention was to put the attention to the recognition of the antenatal visits and the early detection of the infections during the pregnancy, so the neonatologists could start immediately with therapy, in order to prevent spreading of the infective disease and later consequences to the newborns and infants.
