Normal axillary skin in various populations

Normal axillary skin in various populations Summary The axillary microflora of 163 male and 122 female subjects was examined. Subjects were found to have either a coryneform or coccal dominated flora. Three hundred and sixty coryneform isolates were identified to generic level by cell‐wall type. Axillary coryneforms were found to comprise 83%Corynebacterium, 5%Brevibacterium and 12% other coryneforms. There was a significant correlation between coryneform‐dominated floras and the occurrence of erythrasma, trichomycosis axillaris and pronounced axillary odour. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Clinical & Experimental Dermatology Wiley

Abstract

Summary The axillary microflora of 163 male and 122 female subjects was examined. Subjects were found to have either a coryneform or coccal dominated flora. Three hundred and sixty coryneform isolates were identified to generic level by cell‐wall type. Axillary coryneforms were found to comprise 83%Corynebacterium, 5%Brevibacterium and 12% other coryneforms. There was a significant correlation between coryneform‐dominated floras and the occurrence of erythrasma, trichomycosis axillaris and pronounced axillary odour.
