Abstract: 

Background: Neonatal conjunctivitis (ophtalmia Neonatarum) continues to cause blindness due to the unusefulness of agents used prophylactically in preventing this condition. Prepared povidone-iodine ophtalmic solution is an effective antibacterial and antiviral agent.

Objective: To evaluate and compare betadine solution 1% and erythromycin ointment

0.5% in prophylaxis of ophtalmia neonatarum.

Methods: Through a masked and prospective clinical trail, 300 infants born in Shahid Khani hospital of Kashan were studied. About 30 minutes after birth, 100 newborns received betadine solution 1% (group I), 100 newborns received 1 cm erythromycin rye ointment 0.5% (group II) and 100 newborns received no treatment (group Ill). All neonates were followed up for one month.

Findings: Rate of neonatal conjunctivitis was 9%, 12% and 34% in group I, II, III respectively (P<0.000l).No ocular side-effect of medications was seen in groups I and II.
Conclusion: Ophtalmic solution of betadine (1%) as a prophylaxis against ophthalmic neonatarum is more effective than treatment with erythromycin ointment 0.5% or without treatment. Additionally, it has wider spectrum and less cost and no or minimal ocular toxicity.
