  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Two unmarried males, aged 31 and 36 years each, presented with unilateral acute follicular conjunctivitis. Scrapings of conjunctiva showed adenovirus and Chlamydia trachomatis in both cases. One case had a history of venereal disease 2 years before. Both adenovirus and chlamydia typically manifest acute follicular conjunctivitis of similar clinical appearance during the early stage of the disease. These cases illustrate that urogenital infections may be precursors of ocular infection by adenoviral or chlamydial agents.
