Meningococcal conjunctivitis is classified into primary (direct inoculation of the bacteria into the palpebral conjunctiva from an exogenous source) and secondary (as an unusual complication of systemic meningococcal disease). Primary meningococcal conjunctivitis (PMC) is an uncommon cause of bacterial conjunctivitis. It is important to establish an early diagnosis in view of the potential for invasive meningococcal disease. Vaccination with meningococcal serogroup C conjugate (MCC) vaccines reduces the carriage of serogroup C meningococci and protects against invasive infection. We report a case of a meningococcal C conjunctivitis in a vaccinated child.
