Abstract

Corynebacterial isolates, obtained by selective and non-selective media from conjunctival swabs, were speciated by using two recently developed systems. All 25 strains from 92 individuals, as well as 12 strains from a previous similar study, belonged to lipophilic species. The significance of this unusual finding is discussed.
