Chlamydial conjunctivitis is characterized by chronic onset, minimal pain level, occasional pruritus, and a history of sexually transmitted disease (STD). This condition tends to be chronic with exacerbation and remission. Occasional preauricular adenopathy is present, but chemosis is rare. The conjunctival discharge amount is minimal with a seropurulent quality. There is moderate conjunctival injection.
