Abstract

Summary.

Aerobic and anaerobic bacterial flora and yeast flora of the nasal vestibule were studied quantitatively in eight persons who were persistent, transient or non-carriers of . The nasal flora of all the subjects consisted of lipophilic and non-lipophilic aerobic diphtheroids, propionibacteria and different staphylococcal species. Other micro-organisms, such as and , micrococci, streptococci and coliforms were found only occasionally. The presence of was related to diminished numbers of other staphylococcal strains and of propionibacteria.
