Q.

Chylamidia

Hi,

My friends daughters baby has chyamidia. It was transfered from the mother to him. Is there any information you can give me about this? The baby is very sick and has been in hospital for 2 weeks and she says the doctors arent telling her anything.

Any information would be appreciated!
Thanks!

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted bacteria in both men and women. An infected mother can infect her baby during the birth process. Chlamydia can cause eye infections in the newborn infant as well as pneumonia.
