Abstract

Microorganisms of conjunctival sac, lacrimal sac, and nasal cavity were studied in 86 patients with obstruction in the lacrimal system. We analyzed the data of bacteriologic culture and its antibiotic sensitivity. The results were as follows; 1. Staphylococcus epidermidis was the most common microorganism in conjunctival sac, lacrimal sac, and nasal cavity. 2. There was no correlation among the organisms in conjunctival sac, lacrimal sac, and nasal cavity. 3. Staphylococcus epidermidis and Staphylococcus aureus were most sensitive tocephalothin and cefatoxim.
