In this work it was demonstrated that the main microorganisms which cause, together with other, the generation of inflammatory changes are anaerobic bacteria from the genus Propionibacterium. P. acnes type I causes mild course acne changes while serious changes are generated by P. granulosum type II. It was observed that a high percentage of all tested Propionibacterium strains showed susceptibility to antibiotics but it did not reach 100%.

The therapy should be complex and applied with regard to the course of disease of each individual patient.
