This image depicts a close view of a patients left eye, revealing marked erythematous conjunctivitis, which was more specifically a case of gonococcal ophthalmia, that had been due to the systemic dissemination of Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. In this case, it was an adult patient with a systemically disseminated gonococcal infection, but neonates are in danger of acquiring this ophthalmic infection at the time of their delivery, when the mother is infected with N. gonorrhoeae bacteria.
