The present study includes the clinical, microbiological and immunological examinations of 2 patients with post-juvenile periodontitis. Bacteroides intermedius was the predominant isolate from periodontal pockets with post-localized juvenile periodontitis. Bacteroides gingivalis, Bacteroides forsythus and Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans were detected in samples from periodontal pockets with post-generalized juvenile periodontitis. IgG antibody levels to B. gingivalis were significantly higher in the patients than these of periodontally healthy group. Spirochetes, including Treponema denticola, were found at very high frequencies in all samples from the patients.
