The role of specific micro-organisms in producing chronic wound malodour was investigated by directly comparing odour severity and microbiology in infected and non-infected leg ulcers. Malodour was most frequently associated with infected wounds involving mixed aerobic and anaerobic, Gram-positive and Gram-negative microbial populations. Infected ulcers that were not characterised by an offensive odour were rarely colonised with anaerobic bacteria. A reduced incidence of pigmented and non… CONTINUE READING
