PMID:  6712916     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 65-year-old man developed canaliculitis first of the left lower and later of the left upper lacrimal canaliculus. Mucoid material expressed from the upper canaliculus grew a pure culture of Enterobacter cloacae, the colonies of which had a stringy, tenacious, mucoid property consistent with the clinical findings. Treatment with topical chloramphenicol and oral ampicillin was followed by complete resolution.
