Zusammenfassung

Lange Zeit galt die Akne als bakterielle Infektion. Die Wissenschaftler diskutierten, ob aerobe oder anaerobe Keime die Infektionsursache seien. Die Hauteffloreszenzen wiesen alle Charakteristika einer Pyodermie auf: Rötung, Schmerzhaftigkeit und vor allem eitrige Einschmelzung. Nach Injektion von Bakteriensuspensionen traten sogar Pusteln auf. Zudem waren Antibiotika wirksam. Schließlich machte die Frage, „verursachen Bakterien Akne?“ einer etwas differenzierteren Frage Platz, „spielen Bakterien irgendeine Rolle bei Akne?“. Nur drei Erregerarten sind hier zu besprechen:
  1. 1.

    C. acnes,

     
  2. 2.

    Kokken, hauptsächlich Staphylokokken, Baird-Parker Typ II,

     
  3. 3.

    Pilze des Genus Pityrosporum.
