A full-term infant was born with a swollen left conjunctival sac. Ophthalmia neonatorum developed within 5 d after birth. Examination of the purulent discharge showed Group B Streptococcus. The CRP level was found to be elevated and parenteral and topical therapy was started. Ophthalmia neonatorum resolved after 7 d of treatment.
