Abstract

Summary

The microflora of pus samples aspirated from 50 acute dento-alveolar abscesses was examined. A total of 143 bacterial strains was isolated, consisting predominantly of spp., -haemolytic spp., spp. and spp. An unclassified asaccharolytic taxon was encountered in 17 (34%) of the abscesses. This taxon was found to have a positive association with spp. and a negative association with -haemolytic spp.
