نوع:The effect of topical application of human breast milk in prevention of neonatal conjunctivitis was determined. Five hundred and sixty- five newborns were randomized into two groups, the first group consisting of 327 newborns, received topical breast milk prior to each breast feed for the first ten days of life. The second group of 238 babies received no treatment and served as control. Conjunctivitis appeared in 9.1 percent of babies in group 1 and 25.6 percent of newborns in the control group (p<0.00001). The most common microbial cause of conjuctivitis in both groups was coagulase positive Staphylococcus. Regarding the predominance of environmental micro- organisms as etiology of conjunctivitis in newborns and anti- inflammatory and antimicrobial properties of human milk, topical application of breast milk as a porphylactic measure in neonatal conjunctivitis is recommended.
