    In one year Mycoplasma hominis was isolated from 8 out of 250 clinically infected eyes of newborn infants. This infection occurred in only a small proportion of babies whose mothers carried the organism in the vagina. Probably mycoplasma infection of the eye in neonates is commoner than is realized.
