Disease Ontology:9 Conjunctivitis is a conjunctival disease described as a inflammation of the conjunctiva, the outermost layer of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids, which is most commonly due to an allergic reaction or an infection (usually viral, but sometimes bacterial. fungal infections are rare and occur mainly in people who use corticosteroid eye drops for a long time or have eye injuries involving vegetable matter. newborns are particularly susceptible to eye infections, which they acquire from organisms in the mother's birth canal (neonatal conjunctivitis.

MalaCards: Conjunctivitis, also known as conjunctivitis, unspecified, is related to allergic conjunctivitis and giant papillary conjunctivitis. An important gene associated with Conjunctivitis is PLG (plasminogen), and among its related pathways are amb2 Integrin signaling and Matrix Metalloproteinases. The drugs cromolyn sodium and oxymetazoline and the compounds unicap and lte4 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, testes and t cells, and related mouse phenotypes are respiratory system and digestive/alimentary.
